....just had this for dinner tonight and it is terrific....if you like a little spicy in your meal, then this one is for!...It's enchiladas fixed like lasagna...hence the name, I guess!
I didn't realize there was a difference in enchilada sauces so when I went to open the enchilada sauce tonight and it was green instead of red I thought...oh, oh! ..but that was all I had and so I used it .....makes no difference except in maybe appearance....the red color may have made it more appealing to the eye...but the taste was the same...GREAT!...so, if you pick up green chili enchilada sauce and it is green when you open it...don't worry!!

Layers of corn tortillas, creamy cheese sauce and moist chicken make this Mexican delight hard to resist.

2 to 3 cooked, boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into small pieces (about 3 cups), divided
1 can (28 oz.) or 2 cans (15 oz. each) mild red enchilada sauce
1 container (8 oz.) sour cream
1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ®️ CARNATION®️ Evaporated Milk
2 cups (8-oz. pkg.) shredded cheddar cheese
1 can (4 oz.) diced green chilies, undrained
1 pkg. (12 tortillas) 7-inch corn tortillas
oven to 350º F. Grease 13 x 9-inch baking dish.

COMBINE enchilada sauce and sour cream in medium bowl. Combine evaporated milk, cheese and chiles in medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until cheese has melted and mixture is smooth. Remove from heat.

SPREAD 1 cup enchilada sauce mixture on bottom of prepared baking dish. Layer with 4 tortillas, 1 cup enchilada sauce mixture, 1 1/2 cups chicken, 1 cup cheese sauce; repeat layers one more time, starting with tortillas. Top with remaining tortillas, enchilada sauce mixture and cheese sauce. Cover with foil.

BAKE for 40 minutes. Uncover; cool for at least 10 minutes before serving.

• Different brands of enchilada sauce may have different heat levels. A hotter enchilada sauce can be used if a spicier dish is desired.
• Sliced black olives may be added to the layers.

I didn’t realize that all enchilada sauce isn’t red and I picked up a can of enchilada sauce with green chilies and it was green instead of red…..but that’s what I had and that’s what I used and it still was wonderful!! It might have looked a little better if it were red sauce, but the taste was fantastic!
