Create this family favorite meal with rice, beans, tortilla chips and guacamole! For a little extra, add some cooked chipotle seasoned sausage in the chicken.  


1 teaspoon
vegetable oil
1 1/2 cup
salsa, tomatillo
3 tablespoons
sour cream
1 pound
chicken breast (cooked, shredded)
2 tablespoons
cilantro (minced)
1 1/4 cup
cheese, Mexican (shredded, divided )
tortilla, corn (9-inch )


Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Lightly oil the bottom and sides of a 9 x 13 inch casserole dish.

In a small bowl, stir together the tomatillo salsa and sour cream until smooth. Set aside. In another small bowl, mix together the chicken, cilantro and half the cheese.

Place a spoonful of the chicken mixture into each of the corn tortillas, then roll up or fold the filled tortillas and place into the casserole dish to form a single layer. Evenly pour the tomatillo-sour cream sauce over the top of the tortillas and sprinkle with the remaining shredded cheese. Bake 25 to 30 minutes until tortillas are heated through and the sauce is bubbly. Serve warm.
