Chicken Chile Casserole

1 can chopped green chiles (mild or hot)
1 dozen flour tortillas
1 can evaporated milk
2 cups cooked and shredded chicken
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. In a large bowl, mix chicken, chiles, milk and soup. Stir until blended. Set aside. Grease or oil a large casserole dish. Tear the flour tortillas into small pieces and place half of them on the bottom of the dish. Spoon half of the chicken-pepper mixture over top. Repeat the layer and top with cheese. Bake for 45 minutes or until bubbly. A family favorite for many years.
