I consider this recipe one of my best. Not too many recipes I cook turnout perfect the

first time,but this one did. I hope you like it too.

"I added green chilis and a few jalapenos for heat. Put in way more cheese to make it gooey..all in really good recipe. "

1 onion; chopped
1 bell pepper; chopped
1/2 cup enchilada sauce
1/2 cup heavy cream.
2 tablespoons chilli powder

1/2 cup cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup cream of mushroom soup

Cook chicken until slightly brown on both sides. Add onions and bell peppers and cook

until vegetables are tender. Stir in the enchilada sauce, the cream, the chilli power, and

the green peppers, and cook 5 more minutes, stirring frequently. Line the bottom of

baking pan with half the chips. Spread over with the chicken mixture. In a bowl, mix the

soups and spoon evenly over the chicken. Layer with the rest of the chips, and the rotel

tomatoes. Place in oven and bake for 20 minutes at 350 F. Top with the cheese, and

bake until the cheese is melted.

You want to add enough chips to give the dish a nice crunch. Too few chips and too much liquid will make it soggy, so go easy on the soups. The key is getting right balance of all the ingredients. [I posted this recipe.]
