  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place chicken in a baking dish. Cover and bake for 1 hour in preheated oven. Remove chicken from dish and allow to cool. Remove meat from bone and tear into small pieces.
  3. Meanwhile, mix the cream of mushroom soup, the cream of chicken soup, chili, picante sauce, milk, onion, cumin, and garlic powder in a large bowl.
  4. Spread half the shredded chicken into the bottom of a 9x13 inch baking dish. Cover the chicken with half of the tortilla pieces. Pour half of the sauce on top of the tortillas; sprinkle half the Cheddar cheese and Monterey Jack cheese evenly over the dish. Repeat the layers with the rest of the ingredients.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until all the cheese has melted and sauce mixture is bubbling, 35 to 40 minutes.

My 7 & 9 yr old kids liked this. I upped the cumin to 1 tsp and used half an onion due to personal tastes. Thanks for the recipe; it was great even though I left off a layer of tortillas!

This is very good. My husband loved it. I did not use the cream of mushroom and we still enjoyed it. I also halved the ingrediants- and it worked perfectly in an 8x8 dish.
