Mexican Chicken Casserole

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by new2cookin

I found this recipe in a cookbook, but changed it so much to my own liking that it no longer resembles the original. My husband and I moaned at the first taste of this. It is just as yummy reheated and you can add a few more chips to make it have that crispness again. Hope you enjoy!

This was quick, easy, and delicious! I was looking for a Mexican dish with chicken - but I didn't have the tortillas that I usually use. The chips on the inside layers do soften - but taste just like regular corn tortillas! The chips on the top get nice and crunchy. I did use a Mexican blend of shredded cheese instead of the American cheese - just a matter of personal preference. Even my husband, who normally dreads new recipes (!), liked this one! Thanks for sharing it.
