Cooking Instructions

Step 1: In a small bowl, combine the chicken, sour cream, and 3/4 cup salsa.  Spread 1/4 cup salsa on the bottom of a greased 8-inch square baking dish.

Step 2: Layer with half of the tortillas and chicken mixture; sprinkle with half the tomatoes, minced cilantro, and half the cheese.  Repeat layers with remaining tortillas, chicken mixture, tomatoes, and cheese.
