This recipe appears by special request. Creamy chicken and green chilies I use the regular sized tortillas.. not the large ones.I overlap the tortillas to make the layer. I make it up in an oblong serving dish, I think it is about a 9 1/2 inch by 11 inch pan. But any size you would put 1 full cake mix into will work well . I love this recipe.

This is a great mild casserole! I don't like cr. of mushroom soup so I used cr. of celery, diced up some roasted red bell peppers and about 1/2 a can of Green Giant Extra Sweet Corn drained and sometimes a few spoonsful of Herdez Salsa Verde to the soup mix. I'm thinking of trying to lightly fry the corn tortillas and drain them before layering in the casserole to enhance the flavor of the corn torillas. This is one of my favorite casseroles. Please try it with the green chiles! I'm not a heat person and green chiles are about flavor not heat so they contribute a lot to the recipe!

This recipe is almost identical to the one I have been using! The only difference is that the one that I have calls for 2 cups of cooked and chopped chicken and it also has 1 tbsp flour added to the sour cream. I love this recipe and it freezes so well! I have left out the green chilies to please my picky family, but I think they would be a wonderful addition. I have also substituted montery jack cheese for 1/2 of the required cheese with great results. It was great to see this recipe here--thanks for posting it!
