2 garlic cloves, peeled
2 canned chipotle chiles
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
3/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
Salt and pepper
15 5-inch corn tostadas or 8 cups corn tortilla chips, broken into 2-inch pieces
1 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1 cup sour cream, for serving
Easy Tortilla Casserole Recipe at
Adjust oven rack to middle position and heat oven to 425 degrees. Grease 2-quart casserole dish. Puree tomatoes, onion, garlic, and chiles in blender until smooth, about 1 minute.

Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium heat until shimmering. Add tomato sauce, bring to simmer, and cook until slightly thickened, 5 to 7 minutes. Add chicken, broth, and cilantro and season with salt and pepper to taste.

Place half of chips in prepared dish; top with half of sauce and chicken mixture and half of cheese. Repeat with second layer. Using fingers, expose several chips on top layer so they can crisp in oven. Bake until bubbly and cheese begins to brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Serve with sour cream.
