“I found this in my Pillsbury cookbook. It was originally Turkey Enchilada Bake, but I prefer it with chicken. It is flavorful, but not particularily spicy. If you want to save time, cook and cube or shred your chicken in advance. Also, the original recipe calls for regular sour cream rather than lite.”
