Green Chile Enchilada Casserole


We tried this recipe the other day and ABSOLUTELY loved it! It was so easy, plus we really had every single ingredient on-hand. We’re big fans of anything with green chile sauce – so this was a BIG hit at our house. It takes just a few minutes to throw together, and while it’s baking you have time to throw together a side dish or clean up the kitchen (that’s my kind of recipe!).

Green Chile Enchilada Casserole

This is a personal favorite because it's so easy to throw together! It's a great dish when you don't have a lot of time (and there's not a lot of ingredients!).

  • 4 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
  • 9 10-inch white flour tortillas (you can use corn if you like)
  • 1 28-oz can green enchilada sauce
  • 2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
  • 1 8-oz container sour cream


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a 8x11" baking dish.
  2. Pour 1/4 of the enchilada sauce on the bottom of the baking dish.
  3. Rip up 3 tortillas and cover the enchilada sauce layer. Top with half the chicken, 2/3 cup of cheese, 1/2 cup sour cream, and another fourth of the enchilada sauce. Repeat.
  4. Top the last layer of tortillas with the last of the enchilada sauce and the last 2/3 cup of cheese.
  5. Cover and bake for 45 minutes. Serve warm.


I like it best served with a little extra sour cream, tomatoes, and cilantro.

    First thing on the list, 4 chicken breasts, cooked and shredded. I am not an experienced cook. Should the chicken be fried, baked, or some other form I'm not aware of. Just looking for the best way to do this. Thanks, Tom
    • Hi Tom, you can really cook your chicken any way you would like. We often boil our chicken breasts in water for about 25 minutes or until cooked through. If you are really crunched for time you can also use a rotisserie chicken and shred it.
