  • 1
    Preheat the oven to 350ºF. In a small skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil and cook the onion until soft and translucent, 5-7 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
  • 2
    Add the chicken, enchilada sauce (reserving 1/4 cup for later), buffalo sauce, tomatoes with green chilies, salt and pepper. Simmer for a few minutes just until heated through.
  • 3
    Pour the reserved 1/4 cup of enchilada sauce in the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking pan. Lay two flour tortillas over it, overlapping each other at the center. Spread 1/3 of the chicken mixture over the tortilla shells. Sprinkle with 1/3 of the Mexican cheese and 1/3 of the blue cheese. Repeat the layers two more times, ending with the Mexican and blue cheese on top.
  • 4
    Cover with foil. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 10-12 minutes or until the cheese is nice and bubbly. Let sit for 5 minutes before cutting and serving.

More About This Recipe
An easy casserole that mixes up classic Mexican flavors with spicy Buffalo sauce and creamy blue cheese. As a kid I used to hate blue cheese. Hate it. Anytime my mom made something with it, I ran the other way. It’s a shame really, because looking back I now realize all the fantastic food I missed out on! I’m not sure at what point I got over myself, or what inspired the conversion, but I did eventually grow to like blue cheese. And now I love it as much as I used to hate it! Well, the ol’Mexican casserole comfort food craving set in again, but this time it was screaming “blue cheese”. So I combined my love of blue cheese and Buffalo chicken with some Mexican flavors. A strange combination, you say? No, I’m not pregnant. But when this bubbly casserole came out of the oven and we scooped it onto our plates and put a forkful in our mouths, we knew we had a match made in heaven. Try it and I’m sure you’ll agree!
