First make white sauce mix: Combine dry milk, flour and salt; mix well. With a pastry blender, cut in butter or margarine until mixture resembles fine crumbs.

Put in a large airtight container. Label with date and contents. Store in refrigerator, use within 2 months. Makes 1 quart white sauce.

To make mushroom sauce: Make a white sauce first by putting equal parts white sauce mix and water in a pan. Over medium heat, cook the two until nice and thick.

Take off heat and add 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms; mix well.

To make chicken bake: Preheat oven to 350F. Lightly butter a 2 qt casserole.

In a medium bowl, combine creamy mushroom sauce and chicken gravy (or cream of chicken soup) and milk. Stir to blend well.

Add chicken mix (or turkey mixed with mix ingredients*), salt, onion, green chile salsa and 2 cups of the shredded cheese.

Layer tortilla pieces and chicken mixture alternately in prepared casserole, ending with chicken mixture. Top with remaining shredded cheese.

Bake 35-45 minutes, until bubbly. Makes 8 servings.
