This is a recipe I got from a cook who made this for my teacher friends at an Elementary School in Bryan, TX. Every time the cooks made it the teachers lined up like pigs to the trough. It is pure comfort food. You can easily reduce the fat by using low fat soups and cheeses like I do.

This was very tasty. I will make again for sure. I sautéed chicken tenders for this. I used red bell pepper in place of green peppers. Next time I will add a can of black beans rinsed and drained.
