1 tbsp oil
½ cup chopped hot green chile peppers
½ cup chopped white onion
½ cup chopped bell pepper
½ cup of frozen corn
½ cup drained canned black beans
(3) cloves garlic, minced
(1 ¼) cups cooked shredded chicken breast
1 (28 oz) can of Hatch green chile enchilada sauce, divided
(1) pinch fresh cracked black pepper
(11) (6 inches) corn tortillas, cut into quarters, divided
2 tbsp sour cream, divided
⅓ cup New Mexican hot green chile salsa
1 ½ cups shredded Mexican cheese blend, divided


1. Preheat oven at about 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

2. In a skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat, then saute green chile peppers, onion, bell pepper, corn, black beans, and garlic until onion and bell pepper are tender, for 5 to 7 minutes. Remove the skillet from the heat.

3. Stir the chicken, 1/2 c of enchilada sauce, and black pepper into vegetable mixture.

4. In an 11×17-inch casserole dish, spread 1/4 cup of enchilada sauce in the bottom of the dish.

5. Coat one side of 18 tortillas quarters lightly with sour cream and arrange, sour cream-side up, in the casserole dish. Add and spread 1/2 of the chicken mixture over the layer of tortillas.

6. Stir the green chile into the remaining chicken mixture.

7. In the casserole dish, sprinkle 1/2 c of Mexican cheese blend over the layer of chicken mixture, top with 10 tortilla quarters. Pour the 1/4 c of enchilada sauce over the tortilla layer and cover with the chicken-salsa mixture; then add 1/2 cup of Mexican cheese blend.

8. Coat 14 tortilla quarters with sour cream lightly and arrange, sour cream-side down, over cheese layer. Spread a cup of enchilada sauce over tortillas and top with remaining cheese.

9. In a preheated oven, bake until cook through, and cheese is bubbling for 20 to 25 minutes.
