Food Thursday: Mexican Chicken

I made this recipe up way back when I was a newlywed and was looking for reasonably fast, easy dinner recipes. It involves tortilla chips and tomatoes with chiles so I suppose that’s where I came up with the name. Though now that I’m older and know a little something about Mexican cuisine, I feel like the name is somewhat objectionable. At any rate, that’s what it is in my head and that’s what I wrote on the cute little recipe card that someone gave me as a wedding shower gift. Do they even make recipe boxes & cards any more??

No matter what you call it, it’s easy and yummy.

Mexican Chicken

4 chicken breasts, cooked & chopped (a whole rotisserie chicken would work too)
tortilla chips
cream of mushroom soup
1 14oz can of tomatoes with chiles
1 bag of shredded mozzarella cheese

1. Prepare chicken and preheat oven to 325.

2. Spray a 9×13 baking dish with cooking spray. Crush a couple of handfuls of tortilla chips and line the bottom of the dish.

3. In a large bowl mix together the cooked chicken, soup and tomatoes. Pour over the layer of tortilla chips. Top with shredded cheese and bake for 30 minutes.

  1. Sounds easy and yummy – except in my house we’d probably need to swap out the Cream of Mushroom for Cream of Chicken. Still might work, though.
