I hope mexican chicken one means that more are coming along, because this definitely looks great! Just a few questions that I always have to try to clarify recipee's for other members. What is a casserole dish, and why 3 quarts, never seen that. Do we need lemon juice, and can we cut down on the chili powder, not a fan of those. That's a ton of salsa to be honest, do we really need all thatSmile. thanks for thread, and for serving with rice, some instructions would be nice!

Great post. I agree with Alison if you continue to post quality posts like this I definitely hope this is not it and you should post more. Chili powder Alison if you like chili soup is the same thing and a little bit really ads flavor. Same with the lemon juice. Not sure what casserole juice is but hopefully someone will come here and help!

Nice post. I agree you should use chili powder just to add a little bit of flavor and ditto with the lemon juice even if you cut it down some. Not 100% sure what casserole juice is either.
