    *Parsley*'s Note:

    This is my favorite Mexican casserole! I changed much of the original to suit our taste. I love it with a dollop of sour cream on top. My family loves it!

      This was a smart idea rather than rolling all those enchiladas. I did add a little Italian dressing to add flavor to the chicken mix. Probably b/c I didn't have seasoning packets and used liquid enchilada sauce I had made which was on the bland side. I omitted the water then. I also added diced tomatoes. I like that this recipe doesn't call for anything creamy and I can control the amount of cheese which we did go easy on. Will definitely be making this again in the future. Thanks for submitting!

      Totally tasty and easy to put together. I had everything on hand - it's a great use for tortillas that maybe are on the stale side. It was easy to scale down for our family - I made it in a 2.5 qt casserole dish and used about 2/3 the amounts. Same flavor as enchiladas without the rolling! Added some black olives to the mix - might add jalapenos next time. Thanks for posting!
