Mamita's Chilaquillas Especial

By: Michele Alger-
I created this recipe to mimic the chilaquillas we always had in Mexico while we lived there. They have been a family favorite ever since!
1 bag Jaunita's Brand Tortilla Chips
1 jar salsa verde
1 tub sour cream
1 lb. cheese of choice, grated
1 & 1/2 chicken breast cooked and shredded
Line electric skillet at 350 degrees with tortilla chips and then cover with shredded chicken breast. Cover with Salsa and top with cheese. Repeat with 2nd layer, only don't add anymore chicken. Top with dallops of sour cream and cover skillet with lid and reduce heat to 200 to heat through till cheese is melted and all is slightly bubbly. Enjoy with Senora's Guacamole Favorito!
(We also like to add cilantro and jalapenos for extra flavor and pico!) Muy Rico!!!
