Chicken Enchilada Casserole

I’ve already posted the Enchilada sauce recipe and here is the anniversary dinner I made for Karthik – Chicken Enchilada Casserole. It came out really yummy and tasted so good. Karthik loved it and he kept going back for the leftovers. 🙂

As I mentioned earlier this is one of the easiest casseroles I’ve ever made.Try this recipe and let me know if you liked it too.

  3. Pour a thin layer of enchilada sauce into the bottom of a medium casserole. Now layer in 3 corn tortillas or even 4.
  4. Then top with some shredded chicken mix with some enchilada sauce and small spoonful of sour cream.
  5. Sprinkle with little Swiss and jack cheeses and some jalapenos..
  6. Repeat this step twice more.
  7. Put the casserole dish on a baking sheet and bake it for 30 to 40 minutes until you see cheese bubbles on top.
  8. The baking sheet will catch any drips of sauce or cheese.
  9. After that remove from heat and garnish it with raw red onion rings if you want or you can skip this step.
