2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced

¼-1/2 tsp red pepper flakes or ground

½ tsp of cumin

 This is a mixture of two of my favorite recipes.  It’s a family favorite!

                (if I make it for the kids, I leave out the bell peppers.)

Filling:

1 T  butter

1 small yellow onion, peeled and chopped

Optional:  ½ medium green bell pepper, cored, seeded and chopped   &

6 oz mushrooms (first time didn’t use green peppers or mushrooms…..).

  1. 10 ¾ oz of Cream of Mushroom Soup

  1.  10 ¾ oz of Cream of Chicken Soup

  1.  10  oz can of diced tomatoes

  1.  Small can    of green chilies diced

½ cup chicken broth

1 C   of   sour cream

Tortillas:

Olive oil for frying

8 corn tortillas

 

 

 

Chicken and other Layers:

3 C diced cooked chicken

2 C  medium cheddar cheese  shredded   (tastes good with sharp too)  (try other cheeses!)

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 .  Coat 11 by 7 by 2” baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.  Sauce:  Melt butter in medium heavy skillet over moderate heat.  Add garlic, red pepper and cumin.  Stir fry 1 minute.  Option 1:  you can blend flour, add broth and milk, and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened and smooth (3 minutes).   Stir in sour cream, salt and black pepper to taste.  Set aside.   Or Option #2:  Stir together, cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, sour cream.  Set aside.

Filling:  melt butter in large heavy skillet, over moderate heat.  Add onion, green pepper, green chilies, mushrooms, and tomatoes.  Stir often, until vegetables soften and flavors meld – 10 to 15 minutes. 

Tortillas:  Pour oil to depth of ½ inch in small heavy skillet.  Set over moderate heat.  When ready, dip tortillas, one by one until just long enough to soften.  Drain on paper towels.

 

To layer:  arrange half of tortillas in the bottom of the prepared baking dish.  Then, build up the layers:  ½ the chicken and 1/2 sauce and ½ the cheese.  Then, another layer of tortillas, the other ½ of the chicken and remaining sauce and cheese.

 

Optional:  you can add black olives
