    I like to use this for OAMC sessions. I usually divide the recipe into two making 2 8 x 8 pans. Try different kinds of beans and cheeses for a change.

      This was wonderfully quick and easy to make. I made it for my church's Lenten casserole night and received compliments and several requests for the recipe. My husband and teenage kids enjoyed it too. I did make a few additions. I added 3 small,fresh,red,yellow,and orange sweet peppers, chopped. I used about 1 1/2 lbs. fresh chicken breast, cubed and sauteed in canola and soybean oil blend, plus 1 13oz can of chicken. For the cheese I used 1/2 sharp cheddar and 1/2 mozarella. I substituted fat free plain yogurt for the sour cream on top. I also found there wasn't quite enough for the whole 3 layers in a 13x9x2 pan. (You could make the recipe even quicker and easier by using all canned chicken, and using the bagged,shredded cheese. The taste would be different, however.) A delicious, quick and easy recipe, I will make it again. Update: The second time I made this I used corn tortillas, and all cheddar cheese. Still really good!

      I made this in a 13x9 pan, and there was a ton left over, so next time I will definitely use two 8x8 and freeze one of them! It was delicious! It was also very easy to make. I just threw a whole chicken into my slow cooker in the morning, then mid-afternoon, shredded the chicken and put together the casserole. It was great!
