One word: Delectable. This has been saved to my personal favorite recipe file. I changed out the corn tortillas for flour tortillas due to my corn allergy and it was still fantastic.

This recipe is delicious. My family really enjoyed. I am always cautious when using cilantro, because it really isnt a favorite of mine- but it was great. I think that the casserole needs more texture, because after it cooks, it because soft. I would either try to crush some tortilla strips, or saute some green pepper and add it to the recipe to give it that extra texture.

very good. I substituted salsa for the sauce. Easy to make and delicious.

Everyone in family loved this casserol!! I just added chicken taco seasoning to the chicken before layering!! Perfect for nights with sports and everyone's eating at different times!!

This sounds utterly disgusting. Who makes spaghetti-flavored tacos? I would swap out the spaghetti sauce for enchilada sauce or leave out the tortillas ans use lasagna noodles instead.

I used salsa in place of the pasta sauce and it turned out great!

A better title for this recipe would be "Mexican Pizza Casserole." The pasta sauce gives it a distinct pizza-type flavor and it is actually relatively tasty. If you are a fan of Tex-Mex, you will like this dish. If you prefer more authentic Mexican flavors, this might not be the dish for you. I gave it 3 stars because the recipe is a good, solid recipe and is simple to put together. I changed a few things: I added diced onions with the chicken and cilantro layers, I cut back a bit on the cilantro (used 1/2C instead of 1C), and I also added crunchy corn tostadas with the tortillas to give it a better texture. Next time, I'd completely leave out the tortillas and just use the tostadas. I also might make up my own sauce that's a bit less Italian. I would make this again with a few tweaks.

We made this at a shelter this weekend for 80 people and it was enjoyed by all. One gentleman came back three times. Kind of reminds you of lasagne but with a mexican flavor flare. We were unable to get cilantro at Sam's Club so we added a little Taco seasoning to the recipe. We served this with salad, fruit cup and rolls. I am anxious to make it at home and will probably make it this week.

My familly loved it. I added more fresh tomatoes, fresh pickled banana peppers and a dash of cumin. Will definitely make again as we usually have leftovers with a casserole of this size, but not this time.
