Verde Chicken Mexican Lasagna

I have one more main dish for you to try for your Cinco de Mayo party.  It is a recipe that won 1st place  in a "Favorite Casseroles" recipe contest.  I have to agree.  It is delicious.
Start with shredded chicken.
I used this green enchilada sauce.  Makes this dish "pop".
1 1/2 cup is all you need.
Chop cilantro.
Add chicken, enchilada sauce, sour cream, black beans, corn and cilantro.  Mix well.
Measure your seasonings.
Mix into the chicken mixture.
Taste and adjust seasonings to your preference.
Cut tortilla shells in half
Make 3 layers of chicken mixture, flour tortillas and cheese.
Add a little extra cheese to the top layer.
Decorate with a little chopped cilantro.
Cook for about 25 minutes until nice and bubbly.
Look at all that good stuff.  They taste absolutely delicious.
A dish every amigo will enjoy.
