Ingredients

  • 4 to 5 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • 2 cups sour cream, divided
  • 2 cups Cheddar or Monterey Jack cheese, divided
  • 2 cups corn chips, slightly crushed, divided
  • 2 cups salsa, enchilada or taco sauce, divided (I used vegetable salsa--what I had on hand.)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • lettuce, chopped
  • tomatoes, chopped

Directions

  • -- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 9 by 13 - inch pan.
  • -- Mix shredded chicken with 1 cup sour cream, 1 cup cheese, 1 cup corn chips, 1 cups salsa, and onion. Spread in pan.
  • -- Bake 25 to 35 minutes.
  • -- In order given, layer remaining: sour cream, salsa, corn chips, and cheese. Put in oven another 5 minutes, until cheese is melted.
  • -- Just before serving, add a layer of chopped lettuce and chopped tomatoes.

Notes

This enchilada casserole came by accident, starting with too much filling for the enchiladas. Not only was the casserole delicious, but my family loves the leftovers (even with wilted lettuce).
