Green Chili Chicken Casserole

I found this recipe in a Cooking Light magazine a while ago and have been making it ever since. It's awesome! It's just SO creamy.... and I love the taste of corn tortillas.

Black Beans are a favorite side dish I often serve with many Mexican dishes. I like the recipe because it's speedy and so flavorful.

I used to get Cooking Light magazine a while back too. And I still make some of the recipes from it again and again. I think I may have even made this one. Sounds familiar but I haven't had it in a while. I may have to give it another go. I have a half package of corn tortillas sitting in the freezer.
