Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Casserole

 

This quick and easy Green Chile Chicken Enchilada Casserole is by far one of my favorite meals that my husband makes for us! It’s such a treat when he decides to cook and he just keeps getting better and better at it. I am not a big fan of peppers, onions or chiles but this is SO DELICIOUS and I really enjoy it. The green chile sauce has just enough spice and this casserole only uses 4  ingredients!

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 and spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.
  • **To save a lot of time** we buy a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken, pull off and shred the meat and place it in a large bowl. Or you can cook 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cool and shred.
  • Using metal tongs, lightly char each tortilla, on both sides, over the low open flame of a gas stove burner. Cut tortillas in half. This really makes the dish yummy but is optional.
  • Pour the green chile enchilada sauce into the bowl of shredded chicken and mix well.
  • In your 9x13 baking dish, lay 6 tortillas (12 halves) in a single layer, top with 1/2 of the chicken then 1/3 of the cheese and repeat.
  • Use the last 6 tortillas to make one more layer and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.
  • Bake for 40 to 45 minutes and serve warm.

Notes

You can also mix in 1 (8 ounce) container of sour cream with your chicken, but this is optional.
