Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped and diced
  • 3 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 cans (14.5oz each) tomato sauce
  • 1 3/4 cups chicken stock
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a large sauté pan, 10-12inches wide, heat the oil and add the onions and garlic. Cook for about 8 minutes over a medium heat and the onions turn soft.
  3. Add the tomato sauce, stock, and all of the spices.
  4. Stir thoroughly and simmer for 10 minutes.
  5. In a 13 x 9 inch oven proof baking dish, lay 6 of the tortillas on the bottom.
  6. Spread some of the chicken on top, followed by some sauce and then sprinkle some cheese on top.
  7. Lay another 6 tortillas on top of the cheese and repeat the process two more times, ending with cheese on top, ready for the oven.
  8. Bake in the oven, covered with foil for 35 minutes.
  9. Take the foil off and bake for a further 10 minutes and the cheese has melted and the sauce is bubbling around the edges.
  10. Serve at once with guacamole and fresh salsa.
