I found this in the Gooseberry Patch Best-Ever Casseroles cookbook and I am posting for safekeeping. It was originally submitted by Shellye McDaniel of Texarkana, TX and she describes it as a "low-carb variation of the chicken enchilada casserole...minus the tortillas!" I will adjust cooking times and methods after I make it.
