The one I grew up eating in East Texas. Accept no substitutes.
Boil the chicken until it falls off the bones. Tear up the tortillas and put enough on the bottom of the caserole dish to just cover the bottom. Shred the chicken into medium sized chunks and put it in the dish. Put the rest of the tortillas on top of that. Cut up the cheese into 1" squares and put on top of the tortillas. Mix the other ingredients in a bowl and pour over top of casserole. Place in preheated oven at 400 degrees for 45 minutes. Let it cool for 15-20 minutes.

Jamiewoods 3y agoI don't usually leave comments or reviews but this one deserves one. I made it exactly like it said and it was delicious! The whole family loved it and will definitely make again.
trueblue37 3y agoDelicious. Definitely making again. Used crushed red pepper in place of cayenne. I halved the recipe and had plenty.
amberravenheart 3y agoThis made for a good dinner tonight, but the changes I made didn't work out as well as I'd hoped. We were out of cayenne pepper, so I used red pepper flakes instead. It wound up being too hot for us. Other than that, we enjoyed it and will try it again - either with the cayenne pepper or less red pepper flakes!

jyoung1216 6y agoI really liked this dish. I was trying to replicate one that I had tried a few weeks ago and I think this might have been better. I added a handful of cilantro and a can of Ranch Style beans with jalapeno's. I think both of them were good contributions but I'm sure it would have been wonderful without as well. Thank you for the great recipe.
