Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Heat oil in a large skillet over high heat. Saute onion, red bell pepper, and green bell pepper in hot oil until warmed through, about 2 minutes.
  3. Combine onion-pepper mixture, cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, diced tomatoes, chicken broth, sour cream, cumin, ancho chile powder, oregano, and chipotle chile powder together in a large bowl and stir until sauce is well-combined.
  4. Spread a few tablespoons of the sauce in the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish. Spread 1/2 the chicken over the sauce. Spread about half the sauce over the chicken and top with 1/3 the cheese. Spread a layer of tortillas over the cheese. Spread remaining 1/2 the chicken over the tortillas, and top with almost all of the remaining sauce, reserving 1/2 cup sauce. Top with 1/3 the cheese, remaining tortillas, the reserved 1/2 cup sauce, and remaining 1/3 cheese.
  5. Bake casserole in the preheated oven until bubbling, about 40 minutes. Increase the oven temperature to broil. Broil the casserole until top is golden, 2 to 3 minutes more.

Wonderful dish, used artcat's idea and put pepperjack cheese on top - nice touch to a good dish. Thank you artcat - as for Doug_B there is nothing on this site that says you "have" to try a recipe - if you look at the ingredients and don't like them then just move on, there is absolutely no call to be rude.

Great recipe with unlimited ingredient changes per your individual tastes. One comment; Doug B why don't you get off this site if you have noting constructive to say. Seems like you are only a lowly Troll. You have no hobbies, no interests, no picture, no cooking preferences, etc. so why chime in with your negative comment...without even trying the recipe?

Wow. I haven't made this dish in ages. This particular recipe, and there are lots of them out there, surpasses any I've had before. It might be a little more work but it's totally worth it. The only change I made was putting a final layer of 6 deli slices of pepper jack cheese before baking. Yum!!!!
