DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Take the cooked chicken and tear up/shred and put in a pot.
  • Add the can of rotel, package of taco seasoning (along with any water needed per the directions on the seasoning packet) to the chicken and heat through on the stove.
  • Spray non-stick spray (such as Pam) on a casserole dish. Then, layer the following in the casserole dish -- tortillas (so it covers the entire bottom of the pan), then red sauce (just a thin layer so the torillas don't dry out while cooking), then chicken (doesn't have to be a thick layer because there will be multiple layers), then cheese.
  • Repeat all layers until you are out of chicken but be sure to end with tortillas with red sauce on top.
  • Bake covered for 30 minutes.
