Recipe For Easy Chicken Tortilla Pie

Monday's Leftovers: Chicken Tortilla Pie

There's no better way to soothe the sting of Monday than with an easy, comfort-food dinner. Tonight, I'm using the tender, spicy leftovers from my braised chipotle chicken to make a quick, simple chicken and tortilla casserole. I'll pop layers of chicken, Monterey jack cheese, sour cream, tortillas, and salsa into the oven to create a satisfying, filling dinner in no time flat.

If you've got the energy, make your own salsa from tomatillos or fresh Early Girl tomatoes; if it was one of those Mondays, a jar will do just fine. Stick a couple cervezas in the fridge to chill, and check out the recipe below.
