Serves: 8



  • 1 rotisserie chicken, meat roughly shredded
  • 2 tbsp Yep! Shake Southwest Seasoning
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 - 15 oz can corn, drained
  • 1 – 15 oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 – 4 oz can diced green chiles
  • 2/3rd cup sour cream
  • 1 ½ cup green enchilada sauce (or salsa verde)
  • 8 medium corn tortillas, cut into quarters
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican style cheese

Toppings (optional)

  • Tortilla chips (crushed)
  • Avocado, sliced or diced
  • Fresh cilantro
  • Sour cream
  • Pico de gallo or salsa
  • Sliced jalapenos


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

  2. In a large mixing bowl combine shredded rotisserie chicken, diced bell pepper, corn, diced tomatoes, diced green chiles, Yep! Shake Southwestern Seasoning and sour cream. Mix thoroughly to combine. Set aside.

  3. Add about 3/4th cup of green enchilada sauce (or salsa verde) to the bottom of a casserole dish and spread evenly.

  4. Arrange half of the corn tortillas pieces (about 4 tortillas worth) evenly on top of the sauce to cover completely.

  5. Pour about half of the chicken mixture on top of the tortillas and carefully spread to cover. Then sprinkle about 1 cup of shredded cheese evenly over the mixture.

  6. Arrange the remaining tortillas over the cheese to cover completely then pour over the remaining 3/4th cup of enchilada sauce. Spread evenly over the tortillas.

  7. Add the remaining chicken mixture and then top with the rest of the cheese (about 1 cup).

  8. Cover the casserole dish with a lid or aluminum foil and bake at 375 degrees F for about 25 minutes. Then remove the lid or foil and bake for and additional 5 minutes until the cheese is melted and the casserole if bubbly.

  9. You may want to broil for about 1 minute at the end to brown the cheese. Just make sure to watch closely so that it doesn't burn!

  10. Remove from the oven and allow to rest for at least 10 minutes before serving.

  11. Add toppings of your choice and enjoy!
