This Ida easy dish to make. Just made it today. I use spaghetti in mine, plus a can of hot rotel. It's one of those recipe you can change up on, to your liking. And it will still be ok.

I have been making this since 1998, and I have changed it up a bit. I double the recipe plus 1 extra can of Mexican Ro-tel. I also use two rotisserie chickens. I use nacho cheese Doritos and it is a favorite for special large group get togethers.

Love this dish. The only change I made was dipping the tortillas in the chicken stock before layering.
