Chicken Tex Mex Bake!

I got this recipe from one of my Gooseberry Patch Cookbooks. I will say that the taste was pretty good, but there are a few things I would change next time.

For one, I will use chicken tenders instead of the canned chicken, I'm not a big fan of the canned taste. I also think that I will fry up the chicken tenders AND the onion before adding it to the rest of the ingredients.

mix well. Blend in sour cream, onion and pepper; set aside. Arrange half the tortillas over the bottom of a 13"x9" baking pan sprayed with non-stick vegetable spray. Spoon a layer of chicken mixture over tortillas.

  6. For what it's worth, I found that if I drain and rinse the canned chicken before using, it gets rid of that canned taste.
