Chicken Tortilla Goodness

2 Apr

I made Chicken Tortilla Casserole last night for dinner (inspired by Annie at Annie’s Eats). Dave and I gobbled it up, it was sooo goood. It kind of looks like a big mess, but it tastes like a Mexican Fiesta. So here is the recipe:


  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 2 tbsps garlic, minced
  • 1 jalepeno pepper, diced
  • 1-2 tbsps minced chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1/2 can black beans
  • 1 cup corn
  • 1/2 can diced tomatoes
  • a whole bunch of tortilla chips, broken into smallish pieces
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar


1. Cook chicken in a 10-12 inch skillet with a little olive oil until golden brown. Remove to a plate
2. Add a little bit more olive oil to the pan and saute peppers and garlic for about 30 seconds
3. Add broth, tomatoes, corn, beans, to the pan. Add chicken back to the pan.
4. Cook chicken through, then remove and shred. Add it back to the pan.
5. Stir in 3/4 of the tortilla chips and 1 cup of cheese. Cook for a minute or two.
6. Stir in the remaining chips and top with cheese. The idea is for some of the chips to be crunchy.
7. Put pan under the broiler for 2-3 minutes until cheese is melted.
8. Enjoy!
