PostHeaderIcon Recipe Friday: Chicken Enchilada Casserole

  • 1 boneless, skinless chicken breast -- cooked & cubed
  • 8 corn tortillas
  • 2 cups picante sauce or salsa
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 3/4 cup mild cheddar, shredded
  • 3/4 cup monterey jack cheese, shredded (pepper jack works well, too)
  • 1 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Grease an 8x8 baking dish and place 4 tortillas in the bottom. Layer about 1/2 of the chicken on the tortillas. Cover with salsa, onion and peppers. Dollop (teaspoon-size) sour cream on top, then add 1/2 of the cheese. Add another layer of tortillas, then layer, again with the remaining chicken, salsa and other ingredients as before.

Bake for 20 minutes -- until bubbly -- garnish with some fresh cilantro and serve.

Serves 4-6.
