I use Fiesta Cheddar Soup and it gives it more of a kick. Very delicious recipe!

I can smell the aroma of cumin powder in that Mexican casserole. Hmmm. So mouth-watering. I cannot wait to make this dish for the family and to show off to my friends and guestes. Delicious!

Omg yum! This casserole looks absolutely dreamy and definitely on my to-do list for the near future. I'm not sure how I feel about the cream of mushroom soup in a Mexican inspired dish but, it's a Paula Deen recipe so I'll throw caution into the wind and go with the flow. Maybe some diced jalapeno and olives would give all of that ooey gooey creamy cheesiness a little texture...not that it needs it one bit!

As a dietitian, this recipe is scary !!! All of those cream-based soups will be completely full of fat and sodium. There are so many better ways to enjoy mexican food using fresh meats and vegetables, herbs and spices. I haven't tried this recipe but don't think I'm going to.

In Texas this is called King Ranch Chicken ,

I like the basics of this recipe, but I need to stay away from processed foods. What could I use to make the soups more homemade in your opinion? I think this would be a yummy choice that the whole family would love to keep on the dinner list, but I want to make it a more healthy way.

This doesn't see Mexican enough to me. I believe the recipe should say to use Ro-Tel tomatoes, with the chilies in it, or a similar product, undrained. And you can make it mild or hotter according to your taste, by using the mild, original, or hot. My sister-in-law makes a similar dish, but with egg noodles instead of the tortillas, and Velveeta cheese, and it is delicious!

Thanks for the tip! We love hearing from our readers -- especially when you've made adaptations we may not have thought to try!

HI This looks delicious, I do have a question, What kind of tomatoes (whole,diced, crushed, etc...) and do you drain them? Also, how many will this serve? Thanks so much for any help you can give me.. Can't wait to try it. ) I gave it one because I haven't fixed it or tried it.

I don't think it's right to put a recipe on here that people can't get access to.

Why can't I get into Paula Deens recipe?

Why can't I get to a Paula Deen recipe?

Same here it is a private blog

How come when I try to get a Paula Dean receipe for a casserole I am denied access to it??
