  1. Saute' onion and bell pepper in hot oil in a large skillet over medium -high heat 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in chicken and next 7 ingredients; remove from heat.
  2. Tear tortillas into 1 inch pieces; layer one-third of tortilla pieces in bottom of a lightly greased 13x9 inch baking dish.  Top with one-third of chicken mixture and 2/3 cup cheese. Repeat layers twice.
  3. Bake casserole at 350o for 30-35 minutes.
Variation:
You can substitute low fat soups and baked tortillas if you are tryng to lower fat.  Definitely a dish on my
permanent  menu since everyone ate it.(My menu is pretty flexible I try new dishes as often as I  can but
when I find one that is quick and not to expensive I hang on to it)  My older daughter suggested a Mexican
menu for Thanksgiving and I think this is the best idea ever.  I will of course share some more traditional recipes for you the blog readers .  Look for future posts on the weekend for the next 7-8 weeks for sure.  Thank you for stopping by and until next week stay gold!

My cookbook addiction
