Begin by preheating your oven to 200°C. Take a baking dish or ovenproof skillet and spread 2 tablespoons of tomato sauce evenly on the bottom. Place 3 tortillas on top of the tomato sauce, covering the base of the dish. This creates the first layer of your delicious enchilada pie.
In a mixing bowl, combine the rotisserie chicken, enchilada sauce, cream cheese, dried oregano, onion powder, and fajita spice mix. Mix thoroughly to create a flavorful, creamy chicken filling. Season with salt and pepper if needed. Spread the chicken mixture evenly over the first layer of tortillas.

Now, add another layer by placing 4 tortillas on top of the chicken mixture. Drizzle the remaining tomato sauce over the top tortilla layer, ensuring even coverage. Sprinkle the grated cheese generously over the tomato sauce. Place the assembled enchilada pie in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until the top becomes irresistibly crispy and the cheese is beautifully melted and golden.

While this recipe uses traditional tortillas, feel free to get creative with your choice of tortilla type. Whole wheat, corn, or spinach tortillas can add a unique twist to your enchilada pie.
Experiment with different proteins. Swap out chicken for ground beef, turkey, or even black beans for a vegetarian twist.
Adjust the spice level by adding more or less fajita spice mix. If you like it hot, consider adding diced jalapeños or a sprinkle of red pepper flakes.
Ensure the cream cheese is at room temperature for easier mixing. You can also use sour cream or Greek yogurt as creamy alternatives.
Layering is key to this dish. Make sure to evenly spread the chicken mixture and toppings over the tortillas to ensure every bite is full of flavor.
If you happen to have any leftovers (though it's so good, that's unlikely!), store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Reheat individual servings in the microwave or oven until warmed through.
