  • Chicken Enchilada Casserole

    1 can white chicken, 1 can cream of mushroom soup, 1 can green chiles & about 10 tortillas.

    Combine "wet" ingredients, put tortillas in a layer at bottom of baking dish, spoon some mix in, cover with shedded cheese (I use fiesta blend) more tortillas, more mix, more cheese & layer until you are out of mix. Topp dish with tortillas and cheese, bake at 350 degrees for about 20 min.

    My kiddos love this and it freezes really well.
