"Layered pumpkin pie
I am trying to locate a specific recipe from the Denver junior league cookbook: Colorado Cache
I actually own this cookbook, but having moved in August it must be buried in the boxes that occupy one entire bay of my garage - stacked to the ceiling! I have tried to search those that are easily accessible, but no luck...and Thanksgiving is NEXT week! If anyone has the recipe I would be so very grateful! It is absolutely the best I have every tasted!"

Chicken Enchiladas (Colorado Cache Cookbook)
2 large chicken breasts, poached
1 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
2 Tbsp butter
1 16-oz can tomatoes, chopped
1 8-oz can tomato sauce
1/4 cup chopped mild green chiles
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
12 corn tortillas
2 cups grated Monterey Jack cheese (8 oz)
1-1/2 cups sour cream
Cut chicken meat into 12 strips and salt to taste. Set aside. In a saucepan, saute onion and garlic in butter until soft. Add tomatoes, tomato sauce, chiles, sugar, cumin, salt, oregano, and basil. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer covered for 20 minutes. Remove from heat. Dip each tortilla in tomato mixture to soften. Place one piece of chicken and 2 Tbsp of cheese on each tortilla. Roll up and place seam side down in an ungreased 9x13 pan. Blend sour cream into remaining sauce mixture and pour over enchiladas. Sprinkle top with remaining cheese. Bake covered at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until heated through.
I bought that cookbook when we lived in Evergreen, CO in the early 90s and it's still one of my favorite cookbooks. However, my version does not have a Layered Pumpkin Pie recipe. I see Pumpkin Flan. My book has a 1978 Copyright. Perhaps there is a later edition with your recipe? So sorry I can't help.
