I have been making this for years and never took the time to write the recipe down. I am one of those people who cook without recipes most of the time. If I do you can bet I change it in some way.

This casserole is an easy recipe to adapt you can add black beans if desired, use a pound of ground beef instead of chicken or even a vegetarian version with zucchini and summer squash.

Here is the casserole before going in the oven. The cheese is added after the casserole has been baking 20 minutes. I used the flour tortillas to separate the layers and corn chips for the flavor and crunchiness.
