This recipe already has plenty of reviews but just want to add a few things. I didn't have tortillas so substituted Tostitos and then used less salt. I used regular cream of chicken.and added lots of chopped cilantro. I used a can of diced tomatoes w/ gr chilies plus the can of chopped green chilies both undrained and then omitted the chicken broth. It wasn't dry at all and certainly not bland. My husband couldn't get enough of it. Even after I put away the leftovers I caught him in the fridge with a spoon getting "just one more bite".
