Creamy Chicken and Chile Casserole

Yummy, creamy, fast, and easy! This could easily be doubled or made diet friendly by using low-fat cream cheese and light tortillas. The idea for this came from the back of the green enchilada sauce can, but it had twice as much chicken and enchilada sauce, but the same amount of cream cheese and chilies, also no spices were listed--and was for actual enchiladas--I'm way to lazy to roll up enchiladas 8)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat oven to 400°F.
  2. Cook chicken over medium-high heat until cooked through.
  3. Add seasonings to chicken while cooking.
  4. Add cream cheese and chilies.
  5. Cook and stir until blended.
  6. Arrange 2 tortillas on the bottom of a greased 8x8-inch pan (I cut the tortillas in half and put the straight edges along the edges of the pan, letting the tortillas over-lap).
  7. Sprinkle the tortillas with a small amount of the cheese.
  8. Pour the chicken mixture over the tortillas.
  9. Sprinkle small amount of cheese over chicken mixture.
  10. Arrange remaining tortillas on top.
  11. Pour enchilada sauce over top and sprinkle with remaining cheese.
  12. Bake for 20 minutes.

Out of this world delicious! I used low-fat cheese/cream cheese, but otherwise followed exactly. So creamy and yummy and the perfect amount of spice! My little guy (18 mons) LOVED it and couldn't get enough. :) Thank you so much for sharing -- going in my "Stars" cookbook -- this recipe is a star!

Made this for Zaar Alphabet Tag game and served it with spanish rice and Leo's Pico De Gallo #115741. I followed the directions only I cut down on the cream cheese as some of the others did and used rotissere chicken (seasoned it some). Very Good! DH's dad really enjoyed the meal. Thank you.

Great! My hubby gave it a 9.5!! He doesn't do "hot" and I had dressed it up.. I added some ground mixed red and black pepper, some chipolte pepper, salsa, dried onions, and garlic salt rather then powder..I chopped the tortillas into 2" triangles for ease in fitting them over the space. I used green pork enchilada sauce, and a mixture of mexican white shredded, cheddar and jack cheeses.. Also added a can of sliced olives to the chicken mixture.. Used whipped cream cheese to make it a tad lighter.. Will definately make again.
