This dish is my family's comfort food and it is spicy! We love this so much, someone always brings it to holiday dinners! We all have our own way of making it, but this way is my favorite! If short for time, I buy a rotisserie chicken and shred it up. One whole chicken is the perfect amount for the recipe. I like to use hot diced green chilies and diced tomatoes with green chilies.

Your family is going to love Jessica's chicken casserole. It's filled with Mexican flavor. For our taste buds, it was not spicy so if you like spice use the hot tomatoes and chiles. We love the layers of tortillas and creamy chicken filling. Cheese on top is ooey gooey good. Serve with refried beans and Spanish rice, for a fun fiesta-themed dinner.
