  • Preheat oven to 400°F
  • After boiling and shredding chicken place in a frying pan. Add diced onion and pour can of Rotel over chicken including water. You'll need the liquid for cooking. Add salt, black pepper, cumin, chili powder and cayenne pepper to chicken. Cook on medium high heat for 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and mix in enchilada sauce. Save 1/2 cup sauce to top tortillas off with later.
  • Layer casserole with chicken, cheese then 4 tortillas. You can make 2 of these layers. The last layer will have the tortillas. Top with saved sauce to keep them from drying out then add cheese on top.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes to melt the cheese good then remove and allow to cool a little.

Notes

Helpful Recipe Tips

  • Sub tortillas? There are several brands of tortillas out there now. Don't use cheese tortillas of course but you can sub for any of those. I can't promise the others won't turn soggy though.
  • When cooking boiled chicken to shred there is a point that it shreds super easy. What I do is boil 10 minutes then pull a piece out to see how easy it is to shred. As mentioned, you can always buy a rotisserie chicken from the store and shred it to save time.
  • Skip tortillas in this recipe if you'd like. Just continue to layer the casserole as normal.
  • On final layer save some enchilada sauce to cover tortillas to keep them from drying out on the top.
