Chicken Sour Cream Enchilada Casserole

Sometimes I make chicken enchilada's with green sauce. It is most definetly a fave in this house but I don't make it that often. It has a certain flavor that I can only take so much of so its not a monthly dish by any means. 

I saw a Chicken Sour Cream Enchilada Casserole recipe on TastyKitchen (best website EVER btw) I knew I had to try it. We are not big fans of corn tortillas so that was kinda iffy for me but meh. Gotta try something new right? The other thing I found a tad...interesting...is the cojita cheese. I have never heard of cojita cheese before in my life. Ever. I opened the package and that was kinda...interesting...to say the least. The smell, not so much. The taste, really salty. Honestly, it reminded me of a Mexican cheese version of Feta cheese. Really was NOT a fan at all. But the good thing is there isn't much in there so you really can't taste it. At least I didn't.
