Very tasty, but as many other reviewers said 1/4 cup of salsa is just not enough. I had planned on using 1 cup, but even THAT wasn't enough and I ended up using the whole jar. I mean really, why add water when you can add more salsa? It's also important to pick a good salsa as this dish is strongly flavored by it. Anything from Pace is really disgusting in my opinion, and nothing like a real salsa (I live in Southern California and have had my share!). I used Vons/Safeway brand roasted tomato with cilantro flavor. It's pretty good and cheap. Anyway, I needed to use up some pre cooked chicken breast strips (Foster Farm) so I just diced those and skiped the first step where you fry the chicken in the oil. I also used the whole packet of taco seasoning, but I found one that said low sodium so I bought that. I didn't bother to measure the cheese or chips, I just put enough on to layer it. So the flavor of this was really good, but the cosistancy was just that of beans and salsa. I think it would be better with some pasta in it, like macaroni pasta, or rice. Just something to give it structure. I certainly could have used less salsa, but 1 cup wasn't enough to wet the mixture of chicken, beans, and corn so I'm not sure what the solution is. It was very easy to make, very tasty, and just needs each person's slight tweaking to make it great.
