Chicken Enchilada Suiza Casserole

Introduction

Enchiladas Suizas are a chicken and cheese enchilada served with a green sauce. This is my conversion into a casserole dish that my kid wolfed down. Its not spicy, easy casserole, great for potlucks. You can make it vegetarian by removing the turkey. Enchiladas Suizas are a chicken and cheese enchilada served with a green sauce. This is my conversion into a casserole dish that my kid wolfed down.

Ingredients

    1 med onion, diced
    2 sm zucchini, diced
    2 sm cubanelle or green pepper, diced
    1 tbsp vegetable oil
    2-3 cups diced turkey meat (or sub chicken)
    1c green salsa (1 sm can Herdez green salsa)
    1c sour cream
    Adobo seasoning to taste
    8 corn tortillas
    4 oz shredded cheese, swiss for authenticity, but use what you got around.

Tips

You can make a thinner casserole by using a 9x13 casserole and more tortillas.
Zucchini is my favorite sneaky vegetable or meat extender.
If you like spicy, add some jalapenos to the pepper mix!


Directions

1) Preheat oven to 350
2) Saute onion, zucchini & pepper in oil for 5 minutes until onions are limp. Add turkey, stir. Add salsa & sour cream. Cook until everything is good & hot. Add seasoning to taste. Set aside.
3) Build the casserole, lasagna style. Put a small amount of the sauce in the bottom of an 8x8 pan. Cut 2 tortillas in half and cover the bottom. Cut another tortilla in quarters and cover the middle with one of the quarters. Put half of the turkey mixture on the tortillas. Sprinkle some of the cheese. Add another layer of tortillas as before, add the rest of the meat and another layer of cheese. (Save a small amount of sauce to paint the top layer of tortillas.). Add the top layer of tortillas, the reserved sauce and the rest of the cheese.
4) Bake uncovered 30 min until top is brown and its hot all the way thru. Let set for 10 minutes before cutting.

Serving Size: 6 hefty portions, & you dont need any additional side dishes
