Chicken Chilaquilas

Posted by on Wednesday, May 4th, 2011


Looking for a quick and easy dish for Cinco De Mayo?  Thanks to Nicole from the Franklin Altman Eye Care in Mt. Juliet for not only sharing her dish with my hubby when he was by to get an eye checkup, but also thanks for sharing the RECIPE with me. Chicken Chilaquilas are made with deli-style rotisserie chicken and can be assembled in a snap for Cinco De Mayo.  And there is just enough time while this dish bakes to whip up some Guacamole and Restaurant Style Salsa!

  • 1 cooked Rotisserie chicken shredded
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 8-10 soft  corn tortillas largely diced
  • 16 oz shredded Mexican blend cheese or Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 regular size can of sliced Black Olives (optional)
  • 2 cans of Green Enchilada Sauce

In a casserole dish layer tortillas, chicken, onions and enchilada sauce and continue until you have used all the ingredients. Top off the casserole with the last of the sauce and cheese and top with the black olives.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes covered with foil then bake another 15 minutes without foil.

    Do the corn tortillas give this a bite? I’ve made something similar that people were raving about, but it needed a crunch. It had too much of a dressing texture.

    The corn tortillas do give more texture. Personally I like the flour ones, but the teens prefer the corn tortillas so they win!

    is this a 9×13 pan and what size cans do you use for your sauce? 2 big ones or two small ones????

    Yes Nicole this goes into a 9×13 dish and yes I did use two of the smaller cans of sauce. I think the cans are approximately 12 oz cans.
