Chicken Enchilada Bake

65

When we were newly weds I carefully collected recipes to add to my little plastic file box. I clipped this Chicken Enchilada Casserole recipe from the label of a Campbell's cream of chicken soup can. It was good but it wasn't anything amazing, but for some reason I still held onto it. Over the years I have tweaked it, changed it, and improved it. There's not much left of the original recipe (not even the soup) but it has morphed into something absolutely delicious.
