Cinco de Mayo is over, but we all know there is never a bad time to prepare a meal involving tortillas. Without further ado, let’s take a look at the ingredients you’ll need to prepare a delicious Chicken Enchilada Casserole.
- Eighteen small corn tortillas
- Two tablespoons of olive oil
- Four cups of cheddar or shredded Mexican blend cheese
- A cup of onion, finely diced
- Two cans of split enchilada sauce (ten ounces)
- Half a cup of green pepper, finely diced
- A cup of chicken stock
- Salt and pepper
- Two cans of diced green chiles (four ounces)
- Three teaspoons of cumin
- A cup of sour cream
- Two cans of cream of chicken soup (10.75 ounces)
- Two to four cooked and shredded boneless and skinless chicken breasts
Begin by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Use a skillet to melt some butter and then cook the onion and peppers in the butter until they begin to soften. Use a bit of salt, pepper, and cumin for seasoning. Grab a large bowl and whisk together the green chiles, sour cream, and the chicken stock and soup. Follow by stirring in the chicken, peppers, and onions.
Using a 9×13 inch casserole dish, pour about a cup of the enchilada sauce into it, making sure the dish already has cooking spray. Set down six tortillas on top of the sauce and cover them evenly with roughly a third of the chicken mixture. Continue to do this until you have a trio of layers, ending with the layer of cheese.
Cover the casserole loosely with foil and bake it for about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the foil and then bake for an additional 10 to 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted and bubbling. You can optionally add more sour cream on top if you wish.
