1 whole chicken (or 4-5 chicken breasts)
8 corn tortillas
2 cans Cream of Chicken or Mushroom Soup
1 or 2 cans Ro-tel Tomatoes w/Chilis, drained
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
sour cream (optional)


Boil the chicken until completely done, let cool, remove from bone, and shred or dice into bite sized pieces.

Warm the tortillas (just to make flexible) by placing in a skillet with a small amount of oil.

Spray a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish with Pam and line with the warmed tortillas.

Place the chicken on top of the tortillas.

Put the soup (I use one of each kind) and Ro-tel Tomatoes in a blender and mix.

Pour the soup mixture over the chicken and top with cheese.
Bake in a 350 F oven for approximately 45 minutes or until cheese is melted and the soup bubbles around the edges.

You may want to vary the amount of Ro-tel you use, especially if you have children - 2 cans may be too spicy. I usually serve with spanish rice and beans. We also top with sour cream (on the plate, not in the pan).
