Used fritos as recommended and added about 2/3 cup more chicken to make it chunkier.

This came in as pretty close to just another "chicken enchilada casserole." Tasted good enough, but nothing unique or different about it. Still, it comes together pretty fast if you're in a hurry for dinner.

I agree about doubling the recipe because you are going to stuff yourselves with it at dinner or gobble up the leftovers the next day. Trust me on this one! This is serious tex mex comfort food!

I read all reviews, substituted cream of celery soup for the cream of mushroom soup(I do not like mushrooms) and placed the nacho cheese Doritos instead of the corn tortillas into the recipe. I added about 1/4 cup more of chicken broth to make it moist. My guests who are "die-hard Texans" went back for second helpings. My hubby said that the change to the nacho cheese Doritos made the difference.

This is the recipe I prepare and have to copy and give to all. Others call for green peppers,etc., yuck, not authentic. Best recipe around for KRC.

Made this the 1st time - super easy! Family enhaled it!! Doubling recipe tonight! I did subsitute water for the chicken broth to cut back sodium...still plenty salty. I also sauteed the onions in olive oil before adding to the dish to make sure they were soft enough and not an over powering flavor. I used Mild rotel and it was fine for the kids to eat! I HIGHLY reccomend it!!

This is the easy recipe I used years ago and was SO glad to find it again. My family loves it, and so do my co-workers when I bring it for "Pot Luck Day". I highly recommend it -- 5 stars!!
