Make a second layer with 6 remaining tortillas. Top with remaining filling and salsa. Reserve remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Cover and cook on low for 2 to 4 hours.

Pretty good... with some tweaks

I liked this recipe! But I altered it - I used six tortillas (plenty!) and doubled the beans and chicken. Also I used the entire onion and bell pepper (it would've just rotted in my fridge). Lastly, 2 cups of cheese instead of 1 & 1/2 (again, just to use the ingredients).I top this with Tapatio and sour cream - delicious! It would be good with corn and maybe even potatoes.

lots of flavor, great way to use left over chicken... I made it in the oven because I was in a rush, would have been better in slow cooker
