To give it 5 stars, add cumin. You can also layer this in a pyrex dish and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

This was okay, but I don't think I'll make it again. It's a lot of food; it filled my 6-quart slow coooker. It was easy enough to make, but there wasn't anything special or unique about it. The recipe didn't specify what size tortilla to use, so I used soft taco size. Seven on each layer was far, far too much. I ended up with hard, dry tortilla layered between soupy cheese. Also, the combination of sour cream, cream of chicken soup, and chicken needs something to kick it up. One 7-ounce jar of chiles is not enough. I added 3 tablespoons of hot chili garlic sauce, and that made it more distinctive. Also, the recipe specified 15 chicken thighs, but not the amount of chicken breasts. I used four large breast, and that was not enough; I couldn't taste the chicken around all the tortillas. If I were to make this again, I would half everything, use 4 chicken breasts, and add some mixed vegatables. Over 800 calories a serving is a lot, and I personally don't think it's worth it.

Awesome! I was suprised at how good and creamy this was. If you are looking for a lower cal/fat alternative, use light sourcream. The cream and soup make a suprisingly cheesesy consistency. Leave the cheese out altogether or sprinkle it on after its done and you've tasted it. You will be suprised. You dont even need the cheese. I used a can of tomatoes with the green chilies inside w/ lemon, then chopped up a tiny bit of green chile for added bite. (If you dont like spice, skip added chile). Used 1/4 tsp. garlic power instead of garlic clove and cilantro cause I had some.

This is my families new favorite dinner. I used Pilgrim Prides Eat Well Stay Healthy lime chicken breast. They are precooked so you simply heat them up in the mircowave and chop them up. I also substituted Rotel, drained, for the green chili's and used jalapeno sour cream dip for 1/2 the sour cream and added a can of black beans, drained. The tortillals will get mushy if you leave it in the crock pot too long.

This is a great recipe, but it needs a little added zip. The first time I made it, I used pepper jack cheese and offered diners jalapeno peppers and taco sauce on the side. The second time I made it, I put in about 2/3 of a jar of Mrs. Renfros Green Chile sauce. I made it for a church potluck and it was a hit! Definitely a keeper in our house, with the added help.

I loved this recipe. I ended up cooking it in the oven instead of the crockpot and I used corn tortillas because my family likes the corn texture better. This is almost like a recipe I used to make, but the addition of the sour cream makes it much better.

My fiancee actually wanted to eat this 2 nights in a row! That NEVER happens! When we were making this, we left out half of the tortillas because it seemed like to much- DON'T! I wish I's put all of them in, and will do so next time. And the time after that, and the time after that... I'll be making this again.

A great "throw together" dinner! Like other reviewers, I spiced it up, adding chili powder, cumin, and habanero. I did not have any black beans on hand, so I added a can of "Grillin'Beans" (the Santa Fe style), which worked out well. I cooked it on high for only an hour and half.The final result was a tasty cross between a flavorful rib-sticking, creamy chunky soup and a Mexican stew. I plan to experiment with adding more liquids as I think it has the potential to be a great tortilla soup!
