1 onion, chopped

1 green bell pepper, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp vegetable oil

2 cups chicken, cooked

1 (10 ¾ oz) can cream of mushroom soup, condensed

1 (10 ¾ oz) can cream of chicken soup, condensed

1 (4 ½ oz) can chopped green chiles, undrained

1 (10 oz) can diced tomatoes and green chiles, undrained

1 tsp chile powder

¼ tsp pepper

12 6-inch corn tortillas

3 cups Monterey Jack cheese, cheddar cheese, shredded



Heat the vegetable oil in a large pan and add the first three ingredients. Sauté over medium high heat, then stir in chicken and next six ingredients. Tear corn tortillas into pieces, layer one-third in a lightly greased 13 x 9 baking dish. Top with one-third of the chicken mixture and one-third of the cheese. Repeat layers twice. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake five more minutes or until bubbly.

Recommendation:  serve with sautéed zucchini. You can freeze unbaked casserole for up to one month. Thaw it in the refrigerator the night before baking.
