    Yet another "I Hate you for posting this I gotta try it" Dinner

    Chicken Enchilada Casserole.
    This is a recipe my wife got from her mother. It takes time for the prep work but when you see how much we make, you'll understand.
    I don't have many of the measurements so I will try to estimate what they were. Some I have absolute confirmation, bear with me.
    Start with either a whole chicken or about 4-6 lbs of bone in skin on chicken breasts. You will need the bones and skin for flavoring
    Boil the whole lot in a stew pan with maybe 3/4 gallon of water. 1 cut up white onion and about 2 full heads of smashed garlic.
    Boil until the chicken is done (about 2- 3 hours). Remove the chicken and let cool (I mean COOL, trust me)
    Debone and deskin the chicken. Remove as much of the meat as you can and shred. Since you will be doing this by hand, if it's not cooled, you will burn your hands.
    In the largest skillet you have (might take two) bring 2 cans of Cream of Chicken (Cream of Celery or Mushroom also work), those same cans worth of the chicken stock, 3 cans of diced green chiles and the shredded chicken to a boil. Add in container of sour cream. Salt and pepper to taste.You want this to be pretty soupy as it will thicken in the casserole. remove from heat.

    Ladle in a thin coating of the soupy mixure into the bottom and spread out to cover. Add 1 layer of the corn torillas. I recommend the white corn tortillas as they are not as prone to curling up when cooked. add another layer of the soupy mix to get good coverage. top that with yet another layer of tortillas.
    Repeat this until you nearly fill the pan and top off with a final layer of tortillas and top that with Shredded cheese. We used a Colby, cheddar mix.

    Remove and let stand for 10 minutes.


    Serve up on your finest China. I recommend a Dos XX or a Cervesa. Tequilas go with it as well, but after a few you forget what you're eating.
