Servings 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 4 cups homemade green chili enchilada sauce (or two cans)
  • 12 corn tortillas
  • 2 cups cooked & shredded chicken (I use both dark and light meat)
  • 15 ounce can black beans (drained and rinsed (I use cuban black beans from TJ's))
  • 2 cups frozen corn (I use frozen Roasted Corn from TJ's)
  • 12 ounces shredded cheese (I use the Mexican blend pre-shredded from TJ's)
  • sour cream and avocado for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Pour enough enchilada sauce in a 13x9 inch baking dish to leave a thin layer on the bottom.
  • Use 4 tortillas to cover the bottom of the dish, tearing in half or quarters as needed to not overlap.
  • Spread an even layer of chicken, beans and corn by using half of each ingredient. Take about ⅓ of your cheese and sprinkle over. Cover with about ⅓ of remaining enchilada sauce.
  • Repeat with another 4 tortillas, remaining chicken, beans and corn, and top with half of remaining cheese and enchilada sauce.
  • Cover casserole with remaining 4 tortillas, then the remaining enchilada sauce, and cover with remaining shredded cheese.
  • Cover with foil and bake in preheated oven for 30-45 minutes until heated through.
