Ingredients

  • 2 10oz cans verde enchilada sauce
  • 2 cups shredded cheese
  • 1 lb shredded chicken pre cooked
  • 1 10oz can tomatoes with green chilis
  • 1 15oz can refried beans
  • 6-8 flour tortillas torn into bite sized pieces
  • green onion tops optional

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 375. Prepare a 9 x 13 baking dish and begin by placing a layer of tortillas on the bottom of the dish.
  • Then add a layer of chicken and 1/4 a cup of the shredded cheese.
  • Add on half a can of tomatoes and green chilies and one can of the verde enchilada sauce.
  • Finish the layer with a half a can of the refried beans.
  • Then cover with another layer of flour tortilla pieces, and start the layering process again.
  • Once you are finished layering, cover the top with the remaining shredded cheese.
  • Cover with foil, and then bake in the oven for 30 minutes.
  • Remove the foil, add a few green onion tops, and bake for an additional 5 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly. Allow to sit for 10-15 minutes to allow to cool before serving. Serving any sooner may give you a soupy, but still delicious dinner.
