Becoming Chicken Enchiladas (A Casserole for Becoming Rachel)…

this is Rachel 3 weeks after her surgery.  The Transgender is complete!  Please go back in my blog to the table of contents to “Holy Cow!  My repairman is a girl!” and you will hear the story.  I just know she has better legs than me.                  see below…

When Rachel got back from Montreal for her Transgender surgery, (See “Becoming Rachel” on You Tube). Or, the Channel 12 special with Mark Curtis called Becoming Rachel).   I did what I do best:  Took FOOD!  Her first request was Chicken Enchiladas.  So of course, I made a casserole out of it…..thus, “Becoming Enchiladas” in Honor  of  Becoming Rachel!  You just basically tear up everything you would put into an enchilada and make it into a casserole and Chicken Enchiladas become Chicken Enchilada Casserole….. (I think there is a correlation there somewhere…)

boy I wish you could see my legs in this picture….they are SO much better than Rachel’s!  She’s actually quite jealous…do I look chubby in this picture?  Cause the camera adds 40 lbs.


2-3 cups shredded or chopped chicken (perfect for leftovers or make it fresh)

1 chopped onion

6 oz. green chilies

1 can Cream of chicken soup

1-2  cups  sour cream or Mexican crema

1 cup chicken broth

1 dozen flour tortillas, torn up

1 lb. cheese, divided. (Mexican, cheddar, Monterey Jack)

In a great big bowl, mix all the above, saving out enough cheese to sprinkle over the top.  Optional:  Black olives for topping, extra chopped jalapeños if you like hot, a can of RoTel tomatoes….use your imagination!

Put it all in a 9×13 pan and top with cheese.  Bake about 45-50 minutes at 350 or till it’s brown and bubbly.  Delicious.   ask me how I know!IMG_3125
