Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Growing up one of my favorite dishes that my mom made me was an Enchilada Casserole. I absolutely love this dish now because you really can make it as healthy as you want or as unhealthy as you want by how much sauce and cheese you choose to put on it. Here is the recipe.

- Green Enchilada sauce
- corn tortillas
- shredded chicken
- canned green chilis
- chopped yellow onion
- shredded cheese

Use a deep baking pan. Start by putting a little bit of sauce on the bottom of the pan, then layer the ingredients in order; chicken, then green chilis, chopped yellow onion, and shredded cheese. Top the shredded cheese with some more sauce and then continue the same process all over again until you reach the height that you want. Always finish with a little bit of sauce on the top. Bake at 350 degrees. Everything in the dish is already cooked so baking is purely just to heat everything up until the cheese is bubbling on top.

*You can also make beef enchiladas as well. My family always used green enchilada sauce for the chicken enchiladas and red enchilada sauce for beef enchiladas.

*Make this dish quick and easy by buying pre-chopped onions and pre-shredded cheese. Also, boil down your chicken and shred it the night before in order to make it easy to complete the dish.

Hope you all like it! one of my very favorites. Have a great day!
