    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    A delicious creamy chicken, black bean and corn mixture between layers of tortillas then baked, low-fat sour cream and shredded cheese may be used and all amounts may be adjusted to taste, I also add in finely chopped and seeded jalapeno peppers to the sour cream mixture but that is optional, you may add in about 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro if desired, see Kittencal's Red Enchilada or Taco Sauce or use purchased red enchilada sauce --- this is a great casserole! :)

      Oh Yeah! As always, Kittencals recipe is amazing, and resilient enought to be delicious even with my tweaking. I added an onion to the chicken when I sauteed it, and a little salt to the seasoning. I used a 13x9 pan and also added 2 chopped fresh tomatoes to the sour cream/corn/bean mix before cooking, and used 2 extra corn tortillas. I fried the tortillas lightly in corn oil so that they wouldn't be soggy after baking (a trick I learned from a family chicken casserole recipe). DELICIOUS! Great spice, not bland or overly hot. Thanks again!

      This is a great recipe! I used leftover chicken breast that we had barbequed the night before. I didn't have green chilis so I used jalpenos instead. Yum!

      This recipe is excellent! I made it with mild taco seasoning and pre-slow cooker baked chicken thighs and with both cheddar and Mexican four-cheese mix cheese. The enchilada sauce in layers gives just enough heat without being overpowering. Before putting some on the bottom of the dish, I put some mild salsa there which added to the taste greatly. What I will do next time around is add some diced canned low sodium tomatoes to one or both layers. This casserole is a standout. Try it!
