Easy Chicken Enchilada Casserole


Advertisements

I wanted to try this, but did not want it to be like “dip” — after reviewing comments and suggestions, I made the following changes and WoW! was it good! It was more like the casserole I was hoping it would be. First, I used corn tortillas instead of flour (I read too many comments about flour tortillas turning to paste) I used cream of celery soup (a favorite)instead of chicken. I cooked the chicken using taco seasoning for chicken and added about 1c corn and 3/4c black beans once the chicken was fully cooked. I also eliminated 1/2 of the sour cream and used a lite version. It came out delicious and can’t wait to experiment further. Thanks for all the suggestions, they were very helpful!

Would definitely DEFINITELY make again. Guests loved it. I did make 2 changes: one, I spread a little layer of refried beans on the chicken and left out the kidney beans; two, when I was stir frying the sliced chicken, I added a little water and a package of taco seasoning to the chicken for xtra flavor. Wow, was it absolutely fantastic!
