    Bergy's Note:

    Easy tasty casserole just right for lunch or dinner. Serve with a green salad and perhaps some refried beans. If you wish you may skip the center layer of tortillas and only use 6 tortillas (personally I like the center layer). If you skip the center layer still put in half of the cheese after you have poured in half of the chicken mixture.

      This had a nice flavor that sort of reminded me of enchiladas, with lots of tomatoe-ey sauce layered in between all the tortillas, topped with the cheese. I liked this a lot, but I must tell you, there was no was it was ever going to fit into a pie plate at all. I used a large oval casserole (which was the perfect size), but I suppose a person could also use their lasagna pan and have a little extra room in that-- but toss the pie pans out the window!

      Great tasting casserole, halved the recipe and used three tortilla's. Added more Jalapeno peppers and when I served it drizzled sour cream, mixed with more coriander, on top.

      This had a great flavor and such a pretty presentation -- plus so healthy with all the veggies! I think poaching the chicken pieces instead of browning them in the skillet would give them a better texture (mine were a little chewy). Also -- I needed more than the listed amount of cheese to be able to cover the top layer of tortillas so they wouldn't dry out.
