Notes

This is a remix of “Chicken Enchiladas I” from AllRecipies, and “Chicken Enchilada Casserole” by 12tomatoes.
If I have them, I also like to top these with chopped, fresh cherry tomatoes. Depending on spice preference, some may want to top with additional taco sauce. (Pace Medium is my favorite, but it’s not necessary.)
