Chicken enchilada casserole ingredients have such a fresh and robust flavor, from the green chilis, caramelized onion, garlic, salsa verde, jalapenos to the corn tortillas, cheese and sour cream on top.

I luv how this casserole comes together, the cooking process fills the house full of a deep aroma of onions, and chicken, tortillas and cheese.

Once the ingredients are prepped and ready to assemble, it is truly a zen moment.   You layer the chicken and spread the cheeses on top, and do it all over again.   I always see how many layers I can make and get into the pan, just to see how close to the top I can make it.

From the first bite to the last, I luv the texture of the casserole in my mouth, it is a soft, spicy, warm cheesy casserole that just melts with every spoonful.

Chicken Enchilada casserole is my go to, when I am starving and craving a good hot meal with flavor and substance, you really can’t go wrong with the meal.

Don’t forget to add sour cream, shredded lettuce, tomato and extra jalapenos as your topping for that added level of flavors, and bit of crunch.

 

Elvira thinks my Chicken Enchilada Casserole is the best!
