Chicken Fajita Casserole

This is an easy recipe to put together on a busy evening.  It doesn't require a lot of unusual ingredients, and can be adapted to whatever you have in the house.  No corn tortillas?  Use flour tortillas!  No chicken?  Use ground beef, beef strips or shrimp.  You see what I mean?  After baking, you can top it with some sour cream dobs, olives, or guacamole.

8 corn tortillas
3 c. salsa-homemade or jarred
2 c. grated cheese-whatever kind you like (I used Cheddar)
1 jalapeno
2 chicken breasts
1 red or yellow or orange pepper
1/4 onion
1 t. oregano
1/2 t. chili powder
1/2 t. paprika
olives, sour cream, guacamole, refried beans (optional)
Put 1 1/2 cups of salsa in the bottom of an 8 x 8 baking pan.  Top with four whole corn tortillas.
If desired top tortillas with 1/2 c. refried beans.  Top with cheese.  Dice onion, pepper and chicken.  Cook in a small amount of oil until chicken is no longer pink.  Add spices.  Chop jalapeno and add in.
Put cooked chicken mixture on top of cheese in baking dish.  Top with 4 more tortillas, remaining 1 1/2 c. salsa, and 1 c. cheddar cheese.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
