Think Mexican Chicken Lasagna and you’re pretty close to this version of our Chilaquilles recipe which substitutes Red Enchilada Sauce for the more traditional Cream and Chiles Verdes of our Chilaquilles recipe. Simple to make and quite simply a casserole version of the classic Mexican Chicken Enchiladas. One of the BEST ways to enjoy this recipe is topped with Nino’s Santa Fe Style Black Bean & Corn Salsa, Sour Cream and chopped cilantro. Add to that a side of Spanish Rice??? WOW!!!..
