This Stacked Chicken Enchilada Suizas Bake is loaded with two types of cheese, chicken, salsa verde, sour cream and corn tortillas. With only 8 ingredients and 10 minutes of prep, this bake is not only ridiculously delicious, it is also insanely easy!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 9'' baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
Warm the tortillas*: Put half (6 each) of the tortillas on a microwavable safe plate and cover with a damp paper towel. Microwave the tortillas in 30-second bursts until warmed throughout. Repeat with remaining tortillas.
Assemble: Spread ½ cup of the salsa verde into the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Cut 1 tortilla in ¼ and place them in the corners of the pan. Cut 2 tortillas in half and place them in the sides of the pan. Finally, layer the last tortilla in the middle. Top with half of the chicken, half of the red onion, half of the chiles, half of the sour cream, one third of the remaining salsa and one third of the cheeses. Repeat layer. Finish final layer with remaining tortillas, salsa and cheeses.
Bake: Transfer to the oven and bake until sauce is bubbling and cheese is melted, about 25-35.
To Serve: Remove from oven and allow to cool before serving with optional garnishes. Enjoy!
You can either use store bought or homemade salsa verde. If using store bought, look for a quality brand you trust, because some of the (cheaper) varieties are quite salty.
You can either shred or chop the cooked chicken depending of your preference. And, you can either cook your own chicken, purchase a rotisserie or buy those packs of chopped, cooked chicken breast. As long as you have about 2 ½ cups of cooked chicken, it doesn’t really matter what route you take, just make or buy what you like.
I always recommend buying the blocks of cheese and shredding them yourself. The pre-shredded cheese has preservatives in it making the flavor (and texture) sub-par.
You will need to warm the tortillas a bit before stacking. You can do this one of two ways, either in the microwave, or in the oven. To warm the tortillas you can also use the oven: Wrap half of the tortillas in aluminum foil and repeat with remaining tortillas. Place in a 350 degree F oven for 15-18 minutes, or until warmed through.
You can stack the tortillas in the casserole dish however you like, but I found cutting some of them into ¼’ths (for the corners of the pan) and ½’s for the sides of the pan works best. (See the video for reference on how I did it!)
