Chicken Tortilla Casserole


I ran across a recipe that I got from a friend in an email dated September 2003.  It was for Chicken Enchilada Casserole.  To me there wasn’t any enchilada sauce, so I re-named it, and I did change it up a bit, so I am calling it Chicken Tortilla Casserole.  It is super good, I can’t believe that I had forgotten about it! Thanks, Lori!

I whipped it up last week with some {Restaurant Style} Re-fried Beans as a side, and it was  a delicious and easy weeknight meal that came together in no time!

If you love casseroles and Mexican food, you are going to want to give this one a try!
