This is an easy and delicious casserole. You can use a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store. Also, if you like, you could substitute cut-up cooked pork in place of the chicken. If your family loves beans, try adding 1 can of spicy chili beans, undrained, to the chicken mixture for extra flavor and fiber. Recipe is from Pillsbury.
- 2 cups chicken breasts, cooked and shredded
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1⁄2 cup thick & chunky salsa
- 1 (19 ounce) can mild enchilada sauce
- 1 (11 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
- 2 cups tortilla chips, coarsely broken
- 1⁄4 cup green onion, sliced
- 1 medium tomato, chopped (3/4 cup)
- 1 cup monterey jack and cheddar cheese blend, shredded (try to use the kind with jalapeno peppers cheese blend)
- Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
- In medium bowl, mix chicken, sugar, salsa, enchilada sauce and corn.
- Place tortilla chips in an ungreased 8-inch square glass baking dish.
- Top with chicken mixture.
- Sprinkle with onions, tomato and cheese.
- Bake 35-45 minutes or until hot and bubbly.
- If desired, arrange additional tortilla chips around edge of dish.
This is a can't miss dish! I changed it up a lot, but that's the beauty of it. I used blue corn chips, left out the sugar, used half the enchilada sauce, added 4oz cream cheese, added an entire bunch chopped cilantro and topped with diced canned tomato with chilies. Just enough heat. We ate it all week with sliced avocado & sour cream. Fantastic. Thanks for the recipe!
If you like cheese--I mean, a lot of cheese--add a layer between the crushed chips and the chicken mixture. I used the blue corn tortillas as well. The recipe is delicious!
Yum! We really enjoyed this. I always have a jar in my pantry to catch the crushed tortilla chips in the bottom of the bag, and I am thrilled to have another recipe that puts them to good use! I traded some other veggies in for some of the corn out of preference, but otherwise it was made as written. Thanks, Lainey! Made for Almost 5 tag.
