    Chicken Breast, Boneless/skinless: #4 Lbs
    Green Chile Peppers: #2 small cans (or more if desired)
    Sour cream Low fat : #1/2 cup
    Pace enchilada sauce: # 3 Jars
    Cheese Low fat #12 cups (use desired amount)
    Corn Tortillas #12


Boil chicken in water until cooked. Pull apart removing all excess fat/veins.
Mix in chiles and sour cream.

Pour small amount of enchilada sauce in bottom of pan. Just enough to cover it. put layer of chicken mixture in bottom of pan. Put layer of cheese on top of chicken mixture. Put one layer of tortilla shells on top of cheese. Completely cover cheese with shells. Pour rest of enchilada sauce over tortilla shells. May need to open second jar and use some of it. Put second layer of chicken mixture on top of sauce. Second layer of cheese. Second layer of shells. Rest of Enchilada sauce. Cover dish with foil and bake at 375 for about 45 minutes or until hot all the way through. The top layer of shells will bubble up some. Remove foil, cover top with more cheese and bake an additional 10-15 minutes to melt the cheese. After about 10 minutes I turn on the broiler to give the cheese a nice golden brown color. You have to watch it closely though or you'll burn it!

This dish is awesome at potlucks or when you have people over! It is my most requested dish!!
I serve it with cornbread on the side. It is a very meaty, satisfying dish.
Hope you all enjoy it.
The hardest part (most time consuming) is ripping the chicken apart.

I make this in a disposable giant lasagna pan that measures 14 7/16 X 10 5/8 X 2 7/8 so the serving sizes vary depending on what the occasion is. Serving sizes are smaller at potlucks than at home gatherings.
