Chicken Tortilla Bake Recipe

Mother frequently made this comforting casserole when I was growing up. Our family would scrape the pan clean. Chicken, cheese and zippy green chilies are a mouthwatering mix.—Jerri Moror, Rio Rancho, New Mexico

"This recipe was definitely a flop. I followed the recipe exactly and it turned out soupy and bland. Super disappointing."

"This is one of my go-to recipes when I need to make dinner in a,short amount time. I use flour tortillas instead of the corn tortillas. I also add a cup of corn to make it a one dish meal.I set out any toppings I have on hand- sour cream, pickled jalapenos, etc & serve with a big salad."

"My kids (14 & 17 year old boys) & husband loved it! Made the following revisions: Sprayed 13x9 with Pam and layered w/6 flour tortillas. No need to cut, just placed them in the bottom going up the sides. To the mix took another reviewers suggestion w/2 cans cream of chicken, 1 can cream of mushroom, 1 cup sour cream, 1 can drained miled Rotel (in lieu of green chilis) and a little milk to desired consistency. Added about a tablespoon or two of my homemade taco mix (packaged would work too) to taste, season salt and dried minced onions since kids won't eat anything if they know there are onions. Layered it as instructed but on top after the cheese I sprinkled a snack bag of Doritos that had been crushed. DELISH! Everyone one loved it!"

"Since I didn't have all the posted ingredients, I had to make some substitutions: 1 can of chilies, no mushroom soup, but 2 cans of cream of chicken, added sliced olives and sprinkled some Cotija on the tortillas before adding the chicken mixture. It was yummy."

"Delicious, everyone loved it! Thought it would be too spicy with the green chilies but not at all. Can't wait to make it again"

"We all loved this dish! It's a lot like a recipe I made years ago that included sour cream, and I wasn't sure we'd like this one as well, but I actually like it better. We did add a small dollop of sour cream to our servings. The recipe seemed so proves that a dish doesn't have to have a long list of ingredients and steps to produce big flavor!"

"I remember my mother making this one day when I was young (following the recipe exactly) and it has been a favorite since. Now I make this dish and we have decided we prefer flour tortillas as opposed to the corn the recipe calls for. Typically, I add corn, black beans, chopped jalapeno peppers, red peppers and a little bit of ground cumin to the filling mix to, we love the combination of peppers, beans, corn, etc; the Southwest mix! We also like it just as the recipe is written! If I am in a big hurry, I will use all white meat caned chicken; still turns out delicious! Great dish!"

"This recipe is what I've grown up to know as Green Chili Chicken Enchiladas.  I end up using 3 cans of the condensed cream of soups, about 1 cup of sour cream or less milk instead of the chicken broth.  I use at least 24 corn tortillas, (best flavor and texture for me is quickly fried in oil until softened, draining excess oil on a paper towel) and more cheese!  A can of Ro-tel can be used instead of the green chile."

"My husband is not a fan of refried beans, but liked this. I used my Pizza cutter to cut the tortillas and it made it much easier."

"I think this recipe is very good, however, I think I would like it better if corn chips were used in place of the flour tortillas. I had a hard time cutting the tortillas with a fork. Maybe they could be cut up in smaller pieces or strips. The recipe had a good flavor."
