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.

Easiest homemade red enchilada sauce (makes 2 cups)

1 cup tomato sauce

1 cup GF vegetable or chicken broth

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 Tbsp. Tapioca flour/starch

1 Tbsp. GF chilli powder

1 tsp. GF dried oregano

sorry Adrian, I am not sure how this was missed in the ingredients list. We have corrected the error. Thank you for pointing this out!

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?
