Description

Enchilada-zagna has layers of corn tortillas, creamy cheese sauce, moist chicken and diced green chilies that make this Mexican-inspired dish a delight.

Ingredients

  • 2 to 3 cooked, boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into small pieces (about 3 cups), divided
  • 1 can (28 oz.) or 2 cans (15 oz. each) mild red enchilada sauce
  • 1 container (8 oz.) sour cream
  • 1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
  • 2 cups (8-oz. pkg.) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 can (4 oz.) diced green chilies, undrained
  • 1 pkg. (12 tortillas) 7-inch corn tortillas

Directions

PREHEAT oven to 350º F. Grease 13 x 9-inch baking dish.

COMBINE enchilada sauce and sour cream in medium bowl. Combine evaporated milk, cheese and chiles in medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until cheese has melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat.

SPREAD 1 cup enchilada sauce mixture on bottom of prepared baking dish. Layer with 4 tortillas, 1 cup enchilada sauce mixture, 1 1/2 cups chicken, 1 cup cheese sauce; repeat layers one more time, starting with tortillas. Top with remaining tortillas, enchilada sauce mixture and cheese sauce. Cover with foil.

BAKE for 40 minutes. Uncover; cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.

TIPS:
• Different brands of enchilada sauce may have different heat levels. A hotter enchilada sauce can be used if a spicier dish is desired.
• Sliced black olives may be added to the layers.

We love this dish in our house! It is delicious, but we do add some extras. I like to add corn, black beans and some diced jalapenos to the cheese mixture. It adds some texture and taste to the casserole. Very good.

I made two pans-chicken ground turkey with wheat tortillas. It was very simple to make and very delicious. I individually seasoned and cooked meats. The enchilada sauce was seasoned to taste before adding to dish. I will cook again.

sloppy mess

If you like a pan full of complete mush, this is your recipe. Will not make again. Didn't taste bad, but it looked nothing like the picture, no distinct layers. I uncovered it for the last 10-15 minutes of baking and it still didn't help.

Don't bother.

I would not make this again! It didn't taste right and the texture was just awful! Don't waste your time!

I made this with the suggestions from the TX woman using the Nacho cheese soup. It was very tasty.
