This is a SUPER recipe, but here is the key to making it a keeper...change the milk to 8 oz. of sour cream (reduced fat is fine) and change the salsa to 1 or 2 small cans of diced green chiles. Also increase the grated cheese to 16 oz. of Cheddar/Monteray Blend. I mix all ingredients together and then layer with the Corn Tortiallas (usually takes more than 6) and alternate layers ending with a layer of cheese. Be sure to add cheese to your soup/chicken/sour cream/green chile mixture. No need for chicken stock either. This is great just served with a salad. Amazing!


I printed this recipe years ago when it called for green chilie salsa, but I just made it for the first time and the flavor was wonderful! I found the casserole to be too "soupy", in fact it reminded me of chicken tortilla soup. The next time I will reduce the amt of liquids and increase the tortilla strips.


This casserole was really good. I didn't realize though that I had to refrigerate it, so I was disappointed to have to wait another day. I used really spicy green salsa, so it has an incredible bite. I think next time, I'll use less onion though.
