Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Top Review by Vicki72

My family loves this recipe! I did make a few changes... the sauce didn't turn out right when I followed the directions the first time, so the next time I just made a paste of the butter and flour, slowly added the broth (just like making gravy), and then when it thickened, I added the cheese. I also added 2 tbsp. of the mild green Tabasco sauce for extra kick! Even my 2 yr old loves it!
