Too salty for me (from the canned soups). Not quite sure what was dollar stretching about this casserole, when you add up the cost of the various ingredients

Way-y-y too spicy!  I made it without the optional crushed red pepper, and it almost blew our brains out.  With leftovers, we had to add bland dinner rolls to cut the spiciness.

I mixed all ingredients together, instead of layering them, and it was a hit with everyone in my house! I did skip the milk (I don't like casserole to be too runny) and the peas (not my favorite).

Just tried this tonight - it was pretty decent, but a few things I would have tried differently: instead of adding a can of cream of chicken, I would substitute for another can of the fiesta nacho cheese soup. I would also decrease the milk and the amount of broccoli a little and increase the crackers on top.
