    **Jubes**'s Note:

    Corn tortillas filled with a cheesy chicken and salsa combination, then baked in the oven with a salsa and cheese topping. Serve with a salad or shredded lettuce and sour cream. Delicious. This recipe is gluten free but if you don't require your meals to be gluten free then you can use regular tortillas and your favourite salsa.

      *Made for Australia/NZ Swap #73* This was quick and simple -- I used the left-over turkey breast from T-giving, and shredded taco blend cheese. I think the most variety of flavor would be the salsa used -- I wasn't particularly pleased with mild chipotle, chunky. Made a full casserole with plenty for another meal. Thanks for posting, Julie.

      This was so good and I liked that I was able to make it earlier in the day and just have to pop it in the oven. I made it all just didn't put the salsa and cheese on top until putting it in the oven (wasn't sure if the salsa was going to make the tortillas soggy). I like enchiladas, but not all the sauce so this was perfect since I could use my favorite salsa on top. Will be making this again! Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #72.
