Chicken Enchilada Casserole

This one is from my first roommate in college, the Dinner Fairy.

Chicken Enchilada Casserole

2 cans cream of chicken soup
cooked chicken
bunch of torn corn tortillas
bunch of sour cream
bunch of cheddar cheese
2 cans diced green chiles

*Mix everything up and put it in a casserole dish at 375 until heated through

My Notes
Here's how I translated this into husband friendly terms (since he made this for me for Mothers' Day):
2 cans cream of chicken soup
3 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
15-20 flour tortillas, torn up
2 C sour cream
8 oz cheddar cheese, separated
1 can diced green chiles, drained (the kids aren't that big on chilies)

Mix everything together (use about half of the cheese), then top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Holy cow was this ever popular! I didn't think the kids would go for this, but everyone but the baby had seconds!
Perry and I loved it!

Ranch Chicken

Ranch Chicken

4-6 boneless chicken breasts
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 C sour cream
1 packet ranch dressing
1/4 C chicken broth

Mix soup, sour cream, ranch dressing, and chicken broth together. Put chicken in crockpot; pour mixture over chicken. Cook on low 4-6 hours. Serve with rice, using drippings as gravy.

My Notes
This ended up cooking the full 6 hours, due to Church things. My crockpot cooks pretty fast, so although 6 didn't kill it, it probably would've been a little more moist before the 5 hour mark.

I loved this. Definately going into Sunday rotations.
Perry loved this, too. When Caleb asked for Worcestershire Sauce, the Sauce King claimed it was perfect as is.
Caleb and Josh sucked it down, which is amazing for Josh, since he doesn't really like anything overtly dairy.
I really thought Mischa would love this, since it has ranch and sour cream, her two favourites, but she only picked at it. She was really tired and we were rushed, so we'll try it again and see what happens.
