Mexican Chicken Casserole

Take about a quarter of this recipe away for use later on

Add the chopped chicken to this mixture.

Get your first tortilla and lump tablespoons of this mixture into the middle and roll up firmly. Do this untill all of the mixture has been used up.

Put into a suitable casserole dish and arrange so that the tortillas stay closed. The tortillas should form just one layer at the bottom of the casserole dish.

Pour the rest of the creamy mixture over the top and then the rest of the cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and leave in the fridge for about half and hour.

Remove from the fridge and then put into a preheated oven at 180°C for 40 - 50 minutes. It should come out piping hot and a beautiful golden colour.
