This is my go to enchilada recipe. Been making this for years. The only difference is that I also add a can of Fiesta corn. Since I want/need leftovers (the leftovers are actually better as everything melds), I double everything and use a 9 x 13 pan. Yes, I just tear the tortillas to fit the pan. I also use extra salsa because I don't want a dry stack.

Very good!! My fianc? really liked it, even though he's not a Mexican fan. I added some leftover corn from the cob with the green pepper. I also used up the tortillas, and moistened it with a little more sauce. It's definitely a make again recipe.

Made this last night for when my son and his girlfriend came over for dinner. It was a hit with everyone. Great flavor. I left it in the pie pan to serve and used a pizza cutter to cut into wedges to serve.

This was a delicious treat! My husband gave me a huge hug after this dinner. lol I shredded the chicken with a fork after I grilled it in a frying pan with a bit of oil, chili powder, salt and pepper.
