Enchiladas Casserole - Trader Joes Style

Here is a favorite dish of our family. Enchiladas Casserole. I make it a casserole because I have never had much luck or desire to roll the tortilla around the ingredients. It is too messy and they never stay together. So I layer my ingredients, similar to making lasagna.

Trader Joe's enchilada sauce has the perfect blend of spices that kids and adults love.

5 - 6 boneless skinless chicken breast
1 package corn tortillas
1 can of refried beans
3 bottles TJ's Enchilada Sauce (shown)
1 bunch Green Onions
1 jalapeño (optional)
2 cans of diced chilies (optional)
1 package mexican blend cheese
Diced Olives, Cilantro, green onions - Optional for garnish

Boil Chicken. Dice or shred and mix with 2 cups green onions, jalapeño, chilies, beans, and 2 jars of TJ enchilada sauce. Thinly coat bottom of a large casserole dish with sauce (from 3rd bottle) then cover with 1 layer of corn tortillas. Layer chicken mixture then tortillas, then chicken, then tortillas.  Cover the top layer of tortillas with the rest of the sauce. Top with cheese and bake (covered with foil) at 375˚ for 45 minutes.

Garnish with Olives, Cilantro or Chives.
Serve with avocados and tortilla chips.
