There are two other similar recipes that were submitted.
Martha Ludwig’s White Chicken Enchiladas uses the same ingredients and amounts, except for the following: 3 - 4 c. cooked chopped chicken, 1 can cream of chicken soup & 1 can cream of mushroom soup, and instead of the milk you use 1 c. sour cream. Martha does not use the onion and butter in her recipe and she bakes it at 375º for 45-50 minutes.
For Shaunna Spain's Chicken-Tortilla Casserole, she uses 12 corn tortillas and browns them in hot oil. In addition to the onion and diced green chilies the recipe calls for 1 finely chopped green bell pepper. She sautés these together and then combines the soup (she uses 2 cans cream of mushroom) and evaporated milk and adds this to the onion mixture. Shaunna uses 1 whole canned chicken or a whole boiled chicken. She layers the tortillas, then small pieces of chicken, then soup mixture, and then cheese. Repeat so you have about 3 layers. This is best left in refrigerator overnight for flavors to blend. Bake at 350º for 1 hour.
