Chicken Tortilla Hot Dish

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by hmms1660

This recipe comes from a friend, I don't know where it originates from, but it's a regular in our household. I always substitute the 98% fat-free versions of the cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soups. I also use whole wheat tortillas and reduced-fat cheddar cheese. Cook time does not include cooking the chicken.

Hot,and I do use the regular tortillas and cheese, but bet it would be great caloried down!!I serve it with a big, crispy salad & ice cold margaritas!
