Dude Ranch Chicken

IMG_5030 (800x533)

Always on the hunt for good casserole dishes for hubby to take for lunches and this one he really enjoyed. The tortillas still get a little mushy even with using corn, which next time I may just set aside the tortillas and top the casserole with it rather than mixing them in. Hopefully that will make them crispy and give a better texture to the dish. The other option is maybe use some noodles in place of the tortillas. I would also maybe like to add a can of corn for some added color, texture and flavor.
