My husband and I were feeling nostalgic for green chile (we used to live in NM), so we dug into the precious Hatch supply and this is what I came up with. If you can't get ahold of Hatch, try for the most flavorful green enchilada sauce you can find. If you can get Hatch--send some to me LOL! The steps look involved but really this takes no time at all.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. In a non-stick skillet coated with cooking spray saute onions, garlic, bell pepper, and corn until tender.
  3. Remove from heat.
  4. Stir in chicken, salt, and pepper, then add 1/2 c of enchilada sauce. Mix well.
  5. Spread 1/4 c enchilada sauce on the bottom of an 11x7 inch pan.
  6. Spread 4 tortillas with sour cream, then place in pan. Pour half the chicken mixture on top.
  7. Add 1/4 cheese and top with two tortillas.
  8. Pour 1/4 c enchilada sauce over tortillas, then cover with remaining chicken mixture and 1/4 c cheese.
  9. Spread 1 T of sour cream on two tortillas, then place them CREAM SIDE DOWN on top of casserole. You will want to layer them crossways from the two tortillas below (trust me, this works).
  10. Spread 1/4 c enchilada sauce on top of tortillas, then sprinkle with remaining 1/2 c cheese.
  11. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.
