If what you’re looking for is a flavor-packed, Mexican-inspired dinner that will have everyone raving about it for weeks to come, then look no further, this is the recipe for you. Green chile chicken tortilla pie is a behemoth of a dish, so it’s perfect for when you’ve got friends over, or for those nights when you just want an awesomely delicious dinner that delivers every time. Essentially, this is a like a quesadilla-enchilada hybrid with layers or tortillas encasing crema-coated, salsa verde-covered chicken…and then all of that is smothered in cheese and more sauce. Does it get any better??
No, obviously it does not, because max greatness has been reached with this recipe. Once you’ve got all your layers assembled – and feel free to add even more tortillas if you really want this to be jam-packed – this bad boy gets put in the oven and bakes to cheesy perfection. You get bubbling hot layers of cheesy, spicy, creamy chicken, all stuffed in between layers of hot tortillas that have absorbed all the goodness of their surrounding ingredients. YUM. While you could add other ingredients like black beans or bell peppers, we really love the balance of flavors that we struck here with the original ingredients.
The chicken rounds everything out and keeps us full, the jalapeños and green chiles bring just the right amount of heat, without having it be too much, and then the creamy crema and tangy cheese cut some of the spice and take everything to the next level. Seriously, if you want a meal that gets everyone excited and comes together in well under an hour, you’ve gotta try this tortilla pie!
