    10. 10
      Stir 1/2 cup of the sauce into the chicken mixture.

    15. 15
      Can be made ahead of time and frozen. Place a large sheet of heavy duty foil in your baking dish with enough foil over the end to fold up and over the frozen casserole. Make the casserole up until you are ready to bake it. Freeze it solid. Remove frozen casserole from your dish and encase in the excess foil for storage. This frees up the dish for other meals. When you wish to heat it, remove foil from the still frozen casserole, and place back into the dish that you froze it in initially to thaw; bake as directed.

      To make this easier, I tear the tortillas and layer them in the dish with the sauce/chicken.

      This is a five star recipe but unless you know what you are doing, you can get into trouble. For instance, it calls for 1 cup onions but does not tell you that they should be sliced, diced, minced or whatever. It also calls for two cups of chicken or turkey but does not advise that this is already cooked and diced. That's my two cents worth. Keep up the good work Merv

      Made this with chicken, cant buy tins of green chillis here so I used fresh. Loved the flavours, and so did my picky teenager. Thanks for sharing. =)
