For anyone that knows me, knows that I am not a big fan of spicy foods. My family laughs at me because I think that black pepper is spicy. Lately, I have been preparing and serving my family a lot of meals that include chicken because, for health reasons, I avoid beef. Since my husband is not too keen on chicken, I decided to treat him and the rest of the family with my Spicy Stacked Enchilada Verde Casserole. 

Since I knew that I was not going to eat the Spicy Stacked Enchilada Verde Casserole I made sure to make it extra spicy.
