“A family staple meal that has been in the monthly rotation for several years now and is still asked for quite often. This is great either served with refried beans and chips as a Mexican dish or with corn and steamed green beans as a casserole.”

Original recipe yields 8 servings

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix chicken, cream of chicken soup, cream of mushroom soup, diced tomatoes with green chiles and juice, chicken broth, onion, and canned green chiles together in a bowl, stirring until thoroughly combined.
  3. Place 1/3 of the tortilla strips in a layer into the bottom of a 9x13-inch baking dish; top with 1/3 of the chicken mixture. Repeat layers twice more; sprinkle Monterey Jack cheese on top of the casserole.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is golden brown and casserole is bubbling, 20 to 25 minutes. If casserole is still slightly runny, let stand 5 to 10 minutes until firm.

I've been using this recipe for years but I always add a chopped green or red pepper and substitute the hot Rotel tomatoes since we like things a little spicier. Sometimes I use chopped jalapenos instead of the green chilis for some added heat. You can also use flour tortillas instead of corn and it's just as good, maybe even better since the corn tortillas can be a bit tough sometimes. You can also substitute cream of celery soup which I often do when I don't have cream of chicken. It's a very flexible recipe. My family has enjoyed this recipe for years.

Easy, delicious, made a couple small changes due to lack of ingredients in pantry -- but came out great. Served with Frito Scoops on the side.

I don't know what I expected, but, this was really good. I didn't expect it to be that good. Thanks. I might cook the onions and mixture a little bit next time...but, there will definitely be a next time.
