Don't assume I cook!

I'm a Beader. I Knit. I design and make Purses. So............I was a caterer for many years.
One of the blogs that I read reminded me of this recipe
and I plan to serve it up to guests Saturday evening.
My wonderful hubby will be doing the cooking.

The recipe was originally published in
Southern Living magazine.
I only use a pinch of dried onion flakes instead of the
large onion that the recipe calls for
because we dislike onions.
It is also great made with ground beef or
strip steak.



1 large onion, chopped
1 large green bell pepper, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
2 cups chopped/shredded cooked chicken
1 can cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1 can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
1 can Rotel, drained
1 can chopped green chiles, drained
1 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. pepper
12 corn/flour tortillas
3 cups shredded Pepper Jack cheese, cheddar, or Monterey Jack

Saute onion, bell pepper, and garlic in hot oil in a large skillet over med-high heat 5 minutes, or until tender. Remove from heat, stir in chicken and next 6 ingredients.

Tear corn/flour tortilla into pieces in a lightly greased 13x9 baking dish. Top with 1/3 of chicken mixture, & 1/3 cheese. Repeat layers twice.

Cover with aluminum foil, and bake at 350' for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake 5 more minutes or until bubbly.
