  1. I agree about the cilantro. I can’t stand it taste like soap.

    1. my husband whole heartedly agreed about the cilantro!

  2. I love this! it looks amazing! I wasnt hungry until I seen this post, definitely Pinning this recipe for later!

  3. This dish looks delicious! I will give this recipe a try this upcoming week. I found your website on the Buns In My Oven link party. I am so glad I did. I am a new blogger and I appreciate your “blog help” posts. Thank you for sharing!

  4. Just wanted to stop by and let you know your recipe was voted most popular on Inspire Me Monday! Taco casseroles are some of our favorites, and this one definitely looks great! Thanks for sharing. :)

  5. How many servings does this make, based on 7 points per serving?
    Thanks!

    1. It’s Points Plus, not Smart Points

    1. It would be good to put reviews on the page..hear what people thought of it who tried it

    2. What size casserole dish do you use? I have a 13×9 and a square 8×8 which would be better?

      1. Heather, 13×9 is great. I think 8×8 might be too small. Not sure.

  6. When and where do you put in the other 1/2 of the chips? I just sprinkled them on top. Maybe I missed in in the recipe. ;) Still, looks and smells great!

    1. Yes sorry that’s what we did, too!

      1. Thank you! I’ve made this twice now and it got wolfed!

  7. This sounds really great. I love cilantro. I put it on everything. Funny how some hate it and others love it.

  9. Oh this looks and sounds great! Thanks for the recipe!Thanks for linking up to Merry Monday! Sharing on Twitter! Have a great week!

  10. This is an easy-to-make casserole, which is also delicious. Please add to the instructions when to add the 1/2 can black beans, when to put on the other half of the tortilla chips and what size casserole you suggest. Thanks.

    1. I don’t know. Try it and let me know how it works! lol

  11. What is the serving size and calories per serving.

  12. I am trying this tonight and wonder when do i add the black beans?

    1. Sheryl, you mix the veggies, beans, and chicken. :) It’s mentioned then referred to as “the mixture” in the recipe. Sorry about that!

  13. I just made this for dinner & it was excellent! I am the only one in my house who eats meat so I have lots of left-overs, but that’s good cause I love it & will make again! Thanks!

  14. Looks amazing but I am counting calories not exactly using weight watchers . Could you give me a calorie count? Thank you

  15. Can’t get the points to calculate to 6? Help?

  16. Cilantro is an acquired taste. When I first moved to Southern California 30 years ago I couldn’t stand the smell of cilantro. But over the years and being exposed to Mexican food many different ways I have come to love it.

  17. My family loved this. Said it was definitely a keeper. I made some modifications to this though. I made it in a 9″ x 13″ casserole as I wasn’t sure what size to use based on the recipe. I cooked 1 lb. of chicken in olive oil first. Then increased the onion to a whole onion and bell pepper (which I increased to 2 whole red peppers diced) that I sauteed with the chicken. I used 2 cups tortilla chips and a 1 lb container of sour cream with 2 cups Mexican blend cheese, 16 oz jar of salsa and 1 full can black beans. . .so basically I doubled the recipe, except I quadrupled the red peppers. It turned out great. Not sure what the olive oil does however to WW points as I don’t do WW.

  18. What would be the point value if you use fat free cheese

  19. I am dieting and counting calories. Does anybody how many calories in a serving? I would love to try this.
