Turkey/Chicken Chilaquiles Casserole

"This is my daughters favorite recipe for leftover turkey. I love it too! It seems time consuming but it does go together quickly once you have everything ready. I got it out of an old cookbook magazine called Fresh Turkey Ideas. We really look forward to Thanksgiving just to have this as our traditional left over. Hope you enjoy!"
