Chicken Tortilla Bake - A fun dish full of creamy flavor. This is a family favorite and a great pot luck dish too!

Back when I first started blogging, Chicken Tortilla Bake was one of the very first recipes I ever posted. When I posted it, my son Jack had helped me out in the kitchen. I have since altered the ingredients of the recipe to make it healthier (no more canned creamy soups!) but I simply had to keep the original pictures of him doing the prep work. After all, this little guy isn’t a kid any more!
