Spicy Chicken Tortilla Casserole is what I call a Mexican Lasagna. It is spicy chicken with sautéed vegetables and salsa that gets layered between corn tortillas. This is a lovely south of the border casserole. It is sometimes called chilaquiles. This is one of my favourite recipes to cook. This is so easy to make and is filling enough to satisfy hefty appetites after a hard days work. This recipe is normally served on its own as it needs no side dishes. However, a friend always makes a light salad to go with this main dish. All in all a superb recipe ready in 30 minutes.
