Fiesta Chicken Casserole

Fiesta Chicken Casserole

Ready in 45 minutes

I got this tasty recipe from Ross Compton of San Antonio, Texas, where Fiesta 2011 has just wrapped up. The recipe is big enough to split into 2 smaller casseroles, one for now and one for the freezer.

"I like to use the 98% fat-free mushroom and chicken soups, and a poblano pepper rather than a bell. I use more chili powder, some comino, and garlic. I also used more grated cheese on top, and baked it uncovered for 60 minutes rather than 40 - 50. "

2 small Tomatoes; chopped
1/3 cup Picante Sauce

Servings  

Preparation

In a large bowl, combine the soups, tomatoes, picante sauce, green pepper, onion and chili powder.

In a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish, layer half of the tortilla strips, chicken, soup mixture and cheese. Repeat layers.

Cover and bake at 350 for 40 - 50 minutes or until bubbly.

Notes

Notes: I use 98% fat-free soups - you can't taste the difference, and they're much healthier. I like to use a Poblano pepper rather than a Bell. I spice it up a little by using more chili powder, some comino, and (of cours!) garlic.
