Some days I feel the need to cook some thing different. I know I can't compare to my brothers south western cooking but I try. So this Chicken chili Enchilada Casserole hits the spot on cool chilly days. Served with a spicy bean & rice side dish and a toss salad we have all the comforts of the Southwestern flair!
