Prep Time: 15 Minutes

Time to Table: 1 Hour

Serves: 6 (1-1/4 cups per serving)


  • 1 packet dry ranch dip mix
  • 1/2 cup Daisy Sour Cream
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 12 6-inch yellow corn tortillas
  • 2 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 10 ounce can diced tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
  • 10 ounce can green chilies, undrained
  • 3 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese


Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. Mix the dip mix and sour cream in medium bowl. Whisk in the chicken stock. Pour 1/2 cup of the sour cream mixture in the bottom of the baking dish. Layer 4 tortillas over the sauce in the dish, overlapping. Top the tortillas with 1/2 of the chicken. Spoon 1/3 of the tomatoes with the green chilies over the chicken. Sprinkle the tomatoes with 1/3 of the cheese. Repeat the layers and top with the remaining tortillas, tomatoes and green chilies. Pour the remaining sour cream mixture over the top of the casserole. Let the casserole stand for 5 minutes. Sprinkle the casserole with the remaining cheese. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until bubbly and cheese is melted and browned. Let the casserole stand for 5 minutes before serving to make slicing easier.

Saw this receipt in a magazine and started tweaking it. I used taco seasoning instead of ranch and ended up with a really delish take on cheese enchiladas without the mess or time commitment. Also added niblet corn to the tomato pepper mix.

I made this for my daughter's bridal shower for 30 people and cooked it in a oven roaster. Everyone loved it. It is easy and very tasty. Will definitely make more often!

Super easy and very yummy! I added green peppers,red peppers and onions to the dish also. I found the recipe in a magazine, which is a variation but still turned out amazing! The one on this website is much easier to follow.

Very good casserole. Everyone loved it. Will try it again with cooked ground beef in place of chicken. Yum!
