Preheat oven to 325º F.
To make sauce, heat oil in a wide pan over medium heat. Sauté onion and garlic until soft, about 8 minutes. Add crushed tomatoes, water, salt, chipotle powder, paprika, cumin and oregano. Simmer for 10 minutes.
In a bowl, mix together diced green chiles and cubed chicken.
Dip tortillas into sauce sparingly and place on the bottom of a greased casserole dish. Spread the chicken mixture over the tortillas and then add a layer of cheese. Repeat with another layer of the chicken mixture. Spread the remaining cheese evenly over the dish.
Bake, covered, for 45 minutes. Remove cover and bake an additional 10 minutes to brown the cheese.
