Leftover Chicken Tortilla Soup Casserole

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Debber

With all the tortilla soup recipes here on 'Zaar, there must be SOME leftovers. So here's what you do with the leftover soup. No more LEFTOVERS--they're "planned overs." Use the soup as the base for this tasty Mexican casserole.

Very good. I used blue tortilla chips and a avocado slices instead of black olives. Loved it.
