Tortilla Chicken Casserole

Tortilla Chicken Casserole created by HeatherFeather

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.

    What a delicious recipe! I really enjoyed the hearty combination of ingredients in this. I did stack mine up in a deep dish pie plate and had no trouble fitting it all in. I used all of the ingredients listed, altough I did seed the jalapenos to reduce the heat as I was serving this to children. The only exception was to replace corn tortillas with whole wheat flour tortillas. As nice to look at as it tasted, too.

    This is soooo good and very easy to prepare even though I messed up. (I used a large can of corn):) We really enjoyed this meal. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    Great casserole recipe. I also needed a bigger than pie dish. I used fresh corn and I cut the tortillas into 8ths to make it easier to dish up.
