Chicken Suiza

"This dish is similar to some versions of Chicken Verde. I checked the recipes here and there were none quite like this one which I created several years ago. This is a real hit with my family. If you want more 'heat' just use a hotter Salsa Verde."

Ready In:




  • Cut the chicken in bite sized pieces.
  • Saute the chicken in a skillet until lightly brown with the salt and the pepper.
  • In a mixing bowl mix well the soup, sour cream, salsa verde, and chopped chilies.
  • Layer the ingredients into a 9 x 13 greased baking pan in the following order: sauce, chicken, torn tortillas, cheese, sauce.
  • Repeat the layering a second time.
  • It is IMPORTANT to end with sauce so that the cheese doesn't form a crust while baking.
  • Bake at 375°F for 30-45 minutes.
  • Until golden brown on the top.
  • Allow to stand for 5-10 minutes before serving.
  • Serve as a casserole with crisp tortilla chips and red salsa as a side.
  • My family also enjoys eating the casserole as a hot dip.

This is so doggone good, and the closest I have gotten to the Chicken Suiza I used to eat at a little eatery near where I used to work, it was their best dish and I had it all the time. Thank you so much for a recipe I will be making again and again.

    I have made this recipe a few times, and my family really likes it. Instead of bite-size pieces, I boil the chicken in salted water for about 20 minutes and then shred it with two forks. Instead of sharp cheddar cheese, I used the finely shredded "Mexican" mix of 4 cheeses that they sell in just about every grocery store. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Thanks CarrolJ!
