~ 2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts equals 4 cups. Pork is awesome, and so is leftover turkey and the cold rotisserie chicken from yesterday that's on sale in the Deli!
~ I add a little broth from the meat if I have it . . . 1/2 cup.
~ Make it "lite", chicken breast, fat free sour cream, low fat soup and cheeses.
~ Make ahead! If it's been made ahead and chilled, bake - covered with foil- for 1 hour. Uncover and bake for 30 minutes more, until cheese is lightly browned and bubbly.
~ Add shredded lettuce, black olives, fresh tomatoes and guacamole' for a real treat!
~ Use 4 cans of chilies, or only 12 tortillas (two layers), only one can of beans or none, you get it. Variations make it to suite your family's tastes and the size of the crowd.
