    jd_2077's Note:

    Not the most "healthy" recipe, but it's very tasty! Very creamy and rich enchilada chicken casserole. If you prefer the more traditional rolled enchiladas, all you have to do is place the chicken and sauce mix (approx 3 Tbsp) in the center of each corn tortilla, roll, and place in casserole dish with the seam side down...then cover the rolls with remaining sauce and cheese. I was feeling lazy, so I did it casserole style.

      i love not having to roll:) i made some subbs based on what i had on hand and needed to use up. I really enjoyed. i used up some old cooked turkey from the freezer. so i skipped the boiling. i did 1 cup water, about 10 oz. green taco sauce(needed to be used) about 12 oz fat free yogurt. all in place of the broth and sour cream. I only had a 7 oz of green chilies. i supplemented with 2.5 diced serranos. and red pepper flakes to desired heat. I like spice. i used a mexican blend cheese. extra onion. and used only about 1/2 the tortillas(no overlapping) yummy, sorry to tweak so muchm, but thank you for the great base.

      I did this as a casserole too. Tried it mostly because the ingredients were what I had available. It was a hit with the whole family! I'll be making this one again.
