Chipotle Tortilla Casserole

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by SusieQusie

This is a recipe attributed to Rick Bayless, found inside the Tabasco sauce box. It's easy, fast & tasty - just right for a quick dinner on a busy day. Be sure to use thick tortilla chips unless you want them "melted" in the bottom of the dish; trust me, I tried it with regular chips! Another option would be - Homemade Tortilla Chips . Note- Cook time does not include precooking the chicken. I used leftover deli rotisserie chicken.
