Next, add the chicken, season with salt and pepper to taste, and cook until slightly browned. Remove from heat and set aside.
Layer six tortillas on the bottom of your casserole baking pan, then sprinkle on the rice and beans.
Next, crumble half of the queso fresco on top, and sprinkle on about a quarter cup of chopped cilantro. Squeeze the juice of half a lime over the rice and beans mixture, then layer on 6 more tortillas.
Next, layer on the cooked chicken and onions, tomatoes, and the other half of the queso fresco. Spoon 1 jar (approx. 2 cups) of the salsa verde over the chicken and tomatoes.
