“A delicious creamy chicken, black bean and corn mixture between layers of tortillas then baked, low-fat sour cream and shredded cheese may be used and all amounts may be adjusted to taste, I also add in finely chopped and seeded jalapeno peppers to the sour cream mixture but that is optional, you may add in about 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro if desired, see Kittencal's Red Enchilada or Taco Sauce or use purchased red enchilada sauce --- this is a great casserole! :)”
