How to make Chicken tortilla casserole

My mom used to make the recipe below all the time when I was a kid. She always called it Mexican Pizza, because she knew I would eat anything with the word "pizza" in the title. I didn't know it at the time, but this meal would one day become my favorite go-to weeknight dinner recipe. It's quick and easy to make, and it's a perfect way to make Taco Tuesday for a crowd.
Most of the ingredients in this recipe are pantry staples, so all you need to whip up is the chicken. Which, by the way, is a great reason to have leftover shredded chicken hanging around! If you're at the grocery store and they have those rotisserie chickens on sale, pick up an extra one. Or, toss a few chicken breasts in the slow cooker overnight and you'll have ready-to-shred chicken waiting for you.
