This recipe also came from my cousin who took an online cooking class. It is best if you put a layer of salsa in it to give it more zing!

I like how simple this recipe is! I substituted half of the sour cream for cream cheese to make a richer sauce. I also added a quarter of an onion (it was what I had left over and wanted to use it) and a clove of garlic since I'm a garlic nut :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, combine chicken and sour cream. Pour ½ cup enchilada sauce into the bottom of the 10x8 inch casserole dish. Place four tortillas on top of sauce. Layer 1/2 of the chicken mixture on top of tortillas. Sprinkle with ¼ cup of cheese. Layer a cup of salsa. Place 4 tortillas on top of this. Layer remaining chicken mixture and cheese on top of tortillas. Cover with remaining tortillas. Pour remaining enchilada sauce over tortillas. Cover the casserole with foil and bake for 35 min, or until hot and bubbly. Before serving, let casserole rest 5 minutes after removing from oven.
