This was a good way for me to use up some kinda tough storebought corn tortillas (tortillas too tough to eat warmed and out-of-hand are usually excellent for this type of dish). I used homemade enchilada sauce instead of canned (Enchilada Sauce ), and I added some leftover shredded rotisserie chicken that I needed to use up because this seemed like a good place to put it. I also only needed about 12 tortillas, but I think mine were 6 inch instead of 4 inch. I didn't get to snap a picture before DH dug into it and messed it up, but I topped it with some chopped green onions, sour cream, and sliced avocado when it came out of the oven. This was a good "not much time before work" or "don't feel like cooking anything elaborate" kind of recipe, and DH seemed to enjoy it quite a bit (which is always a major bonus). Thanks for posting!
