  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. Wow, this looks so good! We love tacos, so this taco casserole recipe would be a hit at my house.

    Thank you for sharing your post at the #HomeMattersParty this week. We hope you’ll join us again when the next party goes live this Friday at 12AM EST.

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

  5. 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!

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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

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