Chicken Tortilla Casserole

Two trays of roasted chicken sitting in our refrigerator and no real plans or it.   What do you do? Search the internet for new chicken casserole recipes.  When we did we stumbled upon this tasty recipe.  The dish makes plenty, enough for a few nights of left overs.
Also good for a great #sundaysupper, especially with this cold weather we are hanging on too.
