  • 12 - 16 corn tortillas


  • Boil chicken until cooked through. Shred using a stand-up or hand mixer.
  • Slice corn tortillas into quarters each using a large knife or pizza cutter. They will be in triangles. You can skip this step but it makes cutting into the casserole easier.

  • Pour a little enchilada sauce on the bottom of your pan, then start your layering.

  • Cut and serve with sour cream, tomatoes, cilantro and onions.
