      This was a very nice dinner, much easier to assemble than traditional enchiladas. I wanted to stretch this into 2 smaller casseroles, so I added an additional cup of chicken, 4 more tortillas, and 1 more cup of cheese. Made half in a 9x9 pan tonight, then froze half the filling, cheese, and tortillas in separate freezer bags for quick assembly later. My somewhat picky son inhaled his serving, which is high praise. Thanks for posting!

      This was quick and easy to make...and very tasty! I have tried it with and without the corn tortillas...instead, we ate the mixture wrapped in flour tortillas. I did add an extra can of Rotel tomatoes because the mix seemed a little dry. It was great. Thanks, KissKiss.
