Chicken Enchilada Casserole

This is a recipe you've probably either made or tasted, but there's a reason for that... It's a great recipe! My Mom made this for us when we were little and my kids love it now too. I often split in in half for 2 meals. It also freezes well. It can be made with flour or corn tortillas. If I use corn tortillas, I don't break them up, I stack them 2 deep and they fit perfectly in a small round casserole dish.

2 pounds (16 ounces, or 4-6 chicken breasts), cooked and shredded
1 large onion, diced
1 small (4 ounce) can diced green chilies, drained
1 can each: Cream of Mushroom, Cream of Chicken & Cream of Celery soup
5-6 flour tortillas (or 6 corn tortillas)
2 cups shredded cheese (cheddar or cheddar-Jack)

Saute onion in a little olive oil until tender. Mix soups together in a large bowl with the onion, shredded chicken and chilies. Lightly spray a 9 x 13" baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and line the dish with pieces of torn tortilla. Top with 1/3 of the chicken mixture, a little shredded cheese, then another layer of tortillas. Repeat 2 more times, ending with a sprinkle of cheese. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees or until bubbly and hot. Serves 8-10.
