No more boring chicken casserole. This is quick and good. A true family favorite! Note that for best results, this dish should be made a day in advance. However, I've made it at the last minute before and it has come out quite good (just a little soupier).
- 4 chicken breast fillets, diced
- 12 corn tortillas, each cut into 4 strips
- 1 (7 ounce) jar green chili salsa
- 1 cup shredded monterey jack cheese
- 1 cup shredded miled cheddar cheese
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
- 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
- 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can milk (soup can)
- 1 teaspoon butter
