Chicken enchilada casserole is a great way to use up leftovers!

What I love about this recipe, this Mexican enchilada casserole is a wonderful way to spruce up leftover chicken, turkey, pork or beef. But for this recipe, I used a rotisserie chicken for my layers in this casserole dish.

The chicken has plenty of flavour from the enchilada sauce and spices. To make the chicken extra creamy, I also added sour cream. The tortillas are used the same way as you would use pasta for lasagna.

And of course, plenty of cheese, you can’t have a Mexican dish without the cheese. This chicken enchilada casserole is for one of those nights when you are looking for something warm, comforting with a little spice.

      I see beans and corn in your picture but no beans or corn in your recipe ingredients. The picture does not match the recipe. What’s up with that?
