  • - 3 chicken breasts, cooked & chopped into bite-size pieces
  • - 3/4 large sweet onion, chopped
  • - 2 cans cream of chicken soup
  • - 1 small can green chiles
  • - 8 large flour tortillas
  • - 4 cups shredded cheese, I used sharp cheddar


  • In a 9x12 pan, place 4 tortilla shells on bottom and up the sides of the pan (it helps to spray the pan with cooking spray).
  • In a large bowl, mix the chicken, onion, soup, and chiles well.
  • Spread half the mixture on top of the 4 tortilla shells.
  • Add another layer of 3 tortilla shells.
  • Spread remaining chicken mixture on top.
  • Add remaining 2 cups of shredded cheese.
  • Cut the last tortilla into 1/2" strips and place in lattice design on top of cheese.
  • Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 35 minutes or until browned.
