I was trying to figure out what to make for dinner and found this recipe based on some of the ingredients I had handy. I used ground beef instead of poultry, sour cream instead of yogurt, and cheddar instead. I also tossed in an envelope of taco seasoning to make it taste more Mexican. All else was according to the recipe. I was surprised how good and filling it was. The leftovers will be good tonight. No kids in my house, but I'm sure they'd love it - crunchy topping and tasty. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Ms. Sandy has truly outdone herself this time! This casserole is just spectacular-- a real winner. Try the yogurt, just as the recipe suggests. I am no health food nut, and I was doubtful about the yogurt, but it makes it absolutely scrumptious. I am just like another recent recipe rater: this is five stars, just as is. No changes. This is a keeper. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I found myself using about 3 times the amount of cheese stated in the recipe item not reviewed by moderator and published

OMG!!! I made this dish last nite and it was a HIT!!! I did shredded chicken breast instead of the turkey, and i used sour cream insead of the yogart. And it was delish! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This dish has a lot of potential. If it's made with chicken instead of turkey it would give it the added flavor it needs, and a diced jalapeno or some hot sauce would give it the kick it needs. Using sour cream instead of yogurt is also a good idea. Good dish (and easy) but can be great. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Delicious! (with a few tweaks) I use boneless, skinless chicken breast tenderloins. Kept the yogurt, used flour tortillas also added a can of mixed veggies, and spiced it up quite a bit with chili and Tony Chachere's seasoning. It's also a great recipe to cook double and freeze. After defrosting, I add the chips and bake! Perfect for busy nights item not reviewed by moderator and published
my husband is a vegetarian so i used the morning star farms meal starters. it looks just like ground hamburg. and i too also used sour cream instead of yogurt and flour tortillas instead of corn tortillas. it was very fast to make also, a great one for busy nights. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I thought this casserole was great. No one flavor overpowered any other. This is perfect as is. I would not change it in any way. item not reviewed by moderator and published
We used beef instead of turkey and sour cream instead of yogurt and rotel tomoatoes for half of the tomatoes...Also used flour tortillas (cuz that's all we had on hand) and added 1/2 cup pecans on top with the chips...Great dish.... item not reviewed by moderator and published
Make it really semi-homeade, substitute canned chicken for the turkey (use the broth from the chicken) and add some drained black beans. Family loved it!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My husband and I decided this would be OK if you doubled the meat and used beef instead of turkey, omitted the mushrooms and artichoke hearts (which really gave it a vinegar taste). And I substituted Rotel when I made it. So overall - this recipe was not too good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family all enjoyed the tortilla casserole. It was simple to make, too:) item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recips sounds good, especially with the exttra twist of adding the artichokes and yogurt. But, it needs something like green chilis added to it. It lacks in flavor and spice. I am not a huge fan of really spicy foods, but this needs an extra kick and added flavor. Kind of boring tasting. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this tonight and after a substantial list of modifications, it tasted alright. I switched sour cream (fat free) for the yogurt, used Rotel instead of the tomatoes, cut the mushrooms, and added a lot of ground cayenne and cumin. The presentation was severely lacking... It looks like a dog half-ate a burrito and threw it up on your plate. I'm not sure what to do to give it some shape, but I had to start with "I know it looks terrible but..." I wouldn't bring it to a party, but it's ok when you're eating by yourself and you can just tell others that you had a decent frozen dinner. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Overall, I enjoyed this recipe but found it a bit bland, even after adding some extra chili powder and cumin. My husband and I solved this issue by using some medium salsa on top. I think switching the yogurt to perhaps part sour cream would also enhance the flavor. I also like the suggestion of keeping out the artichokes (which I didn't actually mind) and using olives instead. I also think some green chliis would be a n ice touch It didn't come exactly how I expected, but I think it could turn into an excellent dish with a few small changes. I also think that it would be a good potluck dish - as you really get alot. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe is not tasteful and very strange. It was wasting of products since we could not eat this. I do cook a lot and even I added more spices to it, it just is a terrible dish. Sorry. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I make it just as the recipe says except for the addition of a little cumin. It doesn't need anything else! My husband and I love it; and for huge fans of Mexican food, that's really saying something.Such an unexpected pleasure for all the low fat ingredients! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I appreciate all the Comments. I too didn't use as much yogurt and I subbed corn for artichokes. It turned out GREAT! I do think it needs a bit more kick for those of you who like it spicy, but overall it was an easy dish to make and there were no leftovers. Although my 5 year old Picky Eater didn't go for it, it is definitely a dish I will make again. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this recipe substituting ground chicken for ground turkey, cream of chicken soup and tomato soup for yogurt as someone else suggested, and diced green chilis for artichokes. I also cut corn tortillas in strips and fried them up and then placed them on top of the casserole before baking. Rather then layering tortillas in the casserole, I just heated flour tortillas to use like with fajitas. My family really liked it and they rarely like what I make. item not reviewed by moderator and published

I'm a Sandra Lee fan and have made plenty of her recipes and liked them. Not this. I guess I should have done what everyone else did and substitute this for that, etc. I pretty much followed it exactly, and was totally disappointed with it. I threw the entire thing into the woods after eating half a dish full. The only thing I liked was the crunchy crushed tortilla chips on top. I don't understand the great reviews, or why mine was so terrible. :( If I were to do it all over (which I won't) I would use flour tortillas, as the corn ones tend to dissipate. I would season it a heck of a lot more. I would leave out the artichokes and mushrooms and use something more fitting for the recipe like beans, corn, or black olives. I would use diced tomatoes with jalapenos or green chilis instead of plain. Maybe use pepper jack cheese instead of just jack cheese. This was entirely lacking in flavor and had a bad consistency. Sorry Sandra, but this one was not for me. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This recipe was really easy to make. My family loved it. We live in the heart of Cajun Country and we are use to eating spicey foods. I added cubed jalapeno's and taco seasoning along with the chili powered to give it more flavor. I also toped the dish with some milded salsa and green chili before baking. It gave this dish the added kicked that it needed. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Not authentically Mexican, but a tasty comfort food meal nonetheless. Made some easy ingredient swaps to meet our family's tastes & turned out wonderfully. Used a can of Rotel (diced tomatoes w/green chilies) in place of tomatoes; used low-fat sour cream in place of yogurt; skipped the artichokes and used a can of pinto beans instead; and kicked up the flavor with a palm- full each of chili powder and cumin, and a sprinkle of red pepper flakes for mild head. A uniform rough chop of the mushrooms and bell pepper makes for a consistent but hearty texture. Yummers! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I was looking for something a little different for a pot luck at work... I followed this recipe exactly.. maybe we are just a bit spoiled here in New Mexico with "mexican food" but this was just terrible, very weird and I thought with loving artichokes and mushrooms this would be good and different... just an awful combination in my opnion... I would stick to an old time favorite and not waste your money, time, or effort on this one... blah!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I love one dish wonder dishes, and this is a good one with Mexican flavor. A good way to use up some old corn tortillas, and room for improvisation to suit your tastes, as many readers have. I made this as the recipe dictated, and quite liked the yogurt (I even used fat free). I added some cilantro since I have it in my garden. I also added a jalapeno pepper to the onion/pepper mix, without seeds it is mild. Yum! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this dish for a potluck and everyone wanted the recipe. I did admit it was yours Sandra . I made some variations however...I used red and yellow peppers instead of green, used half yogurt, half sour cream, diced tomatoes w/ chilies,no chili seasoning, and quarter cup chopped peperoncini's. Was worried it was too soupy, but after baking it thickened up fine. I'll add chopped olives next time. item not reviewed by moderator and published
So I did make some mistakes when making this but it turned out ot be great mistakes. I used flour tortillas, and instead of diced tomatoes I grabbed a can of stewed tomatos. This was a hit with all my family including my 7 year old son who I ususally have to argue with to get him to eat anything other than hot dogs or mac n cheese. I will DEFINATLY be making this one again!!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Great take on old family favorite, we make something similar to this. But instead of mushrooms use sliced black olives and leave out the artichokes. Also use 1cp cream of chick and 1cp tomato soup instead of yogurt. Good eatin!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This was easy to repair and ended up with great flavor. I did use one can of Rotel tomatoes with green chilies and I used flour tortillas on the bottom as well as an additional layer in the middle. I also did as another reviewer suggested and used half yogurt and half sour cream. This was a very flavorful dish with just enough kick. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Before I try this recipe, can you tell me has anyone made this with flour tortillas? And, what size tortillas should I buy? item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family made this recipe and we loved it. We mixed both sour cream with the yougurt. When we made this with the yogurt it wasn't very creamy. When we substituted half of the portion of the yogurt with low-fat sour cream, it was alot creamier. Just a suggestion, but the recipe on a whole was delicious and very easy to make. Everyone should try out the recipe!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Just sharing a healthy, colorful, tasty and super simple black bean salad recipe: http://miocibo.com/2009/04/27/black-bean-mango-and-lentil-salad/ ;) item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this today, and I thought it was great. I made a few changes though...instead of artichokes - I used a small can of diced green chiles. I also used fat free yogurt and I don't think it affected the taste at all! I also placed jalapenos on the top of the whole dish and I baked it without the tortilla chips... After dishing it up, I placed some yummy salsa and crumbled doritos on top!!! This made it killer. I noticed someone said it was "tasteless." I would definitely suggest my varations to "kick it up a notch." item not reviewed by moderator and published
My son (12yo) who doesn't ever like casserole dishes gave this an 8 out of 10.. Which is impressive. Easy to make and very tasty! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This sounds basic & yet so yummy enough by me...*maybe even excellent with a few tweaks & a tad bit hotter would do my family proud. :-) I have had Hubby doing a few off this and my first time to really scroll thru all of the neat shares that you offer to one's palate, menu, theme, pocketbook and dietary pleasure! Wow. I am excited to see all that is in here to have on hand! Yay! Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am not normally a fan of Sandra's cooking techniques, but I was looking for a recipe to use up some corn tortillas I had in the fridge. This was quite tasty and I think it would make a good do-ahead casserole for a crowd. I used the tomatoes with chilies as someone suggested. The dip idea that a previous reviewer mentioned sounds good too! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I always read the reveiws as I like to hear what people say before I make a dish and actually use some of what they say. I used a 13x9 like people said. This makes ALOT of food. I just used 1 cup of yougart and I substituted the artichokes for about 4oz corn. I choose to use ground chicken rather than turkey and I took someones cue about using diced tomatoes with chiles. This dish has ALOT of flavor and will make it again and pass it around to my friends! item not reviewed by moderator and published
In last month's Semi-Homemade magazine, Sandra has a recipe for enchiladas using store bought burritos, so I used that concept to make this dish even easier. I bought some Chicken Soft Tacos from Taco Bell and threw the insides into a pan with the artichokes, some chicken stock and a frozen vegetable medley. I used a can of cheese soup and nacho cheese from Taco Bell instead of the cheese and yogurt and layered with the tortillas from the tacos. Topped with the chips from Taco Bell. So yummy!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I shared this recipe with my co-workers and it is a hit with everyone. I do not use the tortillas- I make this as a dip to use with blue corn chips. I love the artichokes and was not too sure of adding them to a mexican food recipe. This was easy and delicious. I also used Rotel instead of just tomatoes. It adds a little kick! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Susan in answer to you question about the size of pan, it looked like she used 9x13 on the show. I haven't made this recipe yet, so please disregard my rating. It won't let you leave a post without rating the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I am glad I had help in the kitchen for this recipe, seemed to be a lot of measuring. Frozen veggies saved me a lot of time. The taste turned out well. I would decrease the amount of yogurt and artichoke hearts. item not reviewed by moderator and published
please tell me what size baking dish or pan everyone used for this receipe. starts w/soaking in a pie plate, but all the ingredients sound like to much for a pie plate to be baked in. thanks. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used what I had in the house, so the artichokes didn't make it in... neither did the yogurt. I took Joan from Agawam's lead and used canned tomatoes with chiles. I did everything else as directed and it was great! It had a great kick. We served it with low fat sour cream and salsa. I brought some leftovers to work with me so I can enjoy it again for lunch. Thank you Sandra! item not reviewed by moderator and published
Our family really enjoyed this recipe.The ingredients are healthy, and it's easy to make. When baked, this dish makes a nice presentation with good flavors. I served it with Zatarain yellow rice and offered chopped lettuce and fat free sour cream on the side. A side of guacamole would be fun, too. I'm sharing this recipe with friends and family! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made a few changes..... used banana peppers from my garden instead of green peppers, used ground chicken instead of ground turkey, used Penzey's chili powder and Penzey's chile con carne spice, added hot sauce and salt. Turned out great. Next time I will add a can of chiles for more zip though. Thanks Sandra, this one's a real winner! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I couldn't wait to make this, it looked soooo good. I bought artichoke salad which had redpeppers and olives (didn't use) in it. Instead of using turkey I used meatless meat, my husband never even noticed. Which in itself says something because everytime I try to use "fake meat" I can't fool him. This was so full of vegetables and sourcream you didn't taste the "meat". This is an excellent vegetarian meal a nice change for a meat eater. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I used a pound of ground beef and a pound of ground white meat turkey and I couldn't find cut up green pepper so I cut my own. The recipe was very easy and very delicious. I forgot the artichokes also but was very good without. Next time I will add a can of chopped chili peppers. All of the flavors blended so well even the yogurt! Thanks for the recipe. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is going in my recipie box. I made it for company and they really liked it too. I used about twice as much cheese. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this for my family last night and we all thought it was excellent! The only thing I added was extra chilli seasoning to the mixture. I didn't use pre-cut veggies so it took me longer to make than suggested, but that's my own fault! I also made the corn muffins from this episode and they were a delicious compliment to the casserole! I will absolutely make this again =) Thanks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
My family and I thought this was a very good recipe. I did substitute the green peppers for Anaheim Peppers and left out the artichokes by there request. This was a very easy recipe to use and cook with. Will definatly do again!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I watched Sandra make this and could not wait to try it. I must admit I did alot of my own prep work (not much semi-homemade) so my time was spend chopping onions, peppers, garlic, mushrooms and artichokes. For all the work, it was OK. I might make it again only if I had redi-chopped veggies. Did not have chili seasoning mix so I used taco seasoning mix and added a little chili powder & cayenne pepper. Used diced tomatoes w/chiles. The result was good but not great, again I spent too much time. BTW, I did not have baked chips, used regular ones. I put the chips on half way through baking and saved a little cheese to sprinkle on them. Also drizzeled a little taco sauce across. Nicely spiced, had a decent kick, my son thought it was good. He put hot sauce on his plated portion! I added salt. item not reviewed by moderator and published
