I've made this recipe over and over again, and it keeps getting better each time. I've shared the recipe with friends and they say the same thing- delicious!! It's the one dinner I've made that actually came out the way I hoped. Thanks for a great recipe that will always be one of my favorites!

Edible but not special at all. The milk & soup mixture tasted very fake. If I ever make this again I will top with real cheese and sour cream and add a lot more spices.

This recipe is so good...I used red enchilada sauce mixed with the cheese soup to pour over the top to add more flavor. I also doubled the recipe for company and it made a nice presentation with the olives on top! This is a keeper for sure!

Not being a fan of using canned soups as sauces, I didn't think this was going to work as well as it did. I sprinkled some shredded jalapeno jack cheese over the soup mix and browned it; gave it a little extra zest.

These were good, but they didn't have as much flavor as other recipes. I will try a spicier salsa next time.

Overall a great dish. I give it 3.5 stars for taste (good for kids, grown-ups added hot sauce), but 5+ stars for ease of assembly, ingredients and quickness for when you have a screaming toddler hanging on your legs!

Easy to make. I think next time I will add a little velveeta to the cheese sauce and add some more spices. Overall I thought it was pretty good.

Don't think I'll make this again. The filling was good, but the cheese soup just doesn't do it for me. I think next time I'll just use shredded cheese and enchilada sauce for a more traditional dish.
