Jalapeno Chicken Casserole

Recipe by weekend cooker

Instead of using jalapenos, you can substitute 1 (7 ounce) can chopped green chilies. It won't be as hot. You can also substitute turkey for the chicken.

Made this with a precooked rotisserie chicken & corn tortillas instead of chips; it was great! Thought 6 jalapenos would be too spicy, but if you make sure to get all the seeds it's fine.
