Easy Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Use shredded poached chicken breast or rotisserie chicken, or sautéed ground turkey or beef instead. If you'd like, layer in roasted corn, chopped green chilies, black beans or refried beans. Once cooled slightly, top with thinly sliced radishes, cilantro and avocado slices.
