Monterey Chicken Tortilla Recipe

Monterey Cheddar Chicken

This is going to be a family favorite! Everyone enjoyed it when made for the first time. It is quick and easy so a recipe right up my alley! The following would be for a 1 quart (or 9×9) casserole/dish. I double it for my family. Serve with rice!
Ingredients:

2 cans of chunked chicken or turkey

  • I used 2 boneless chicken breasts cut into bite sized chunks. I then cooked them on the stove top in a little lime juice. Be careful to not overcook or the chicken will dry out.
Tortilla Chips

  • Any kind can be used. I used Tostidos Brand “Hint of Cracked Pepper.”
1 can cream corn
1 can Black beans, drained
3/4 cup Picante Sauce/chunky Salsa
1 can sliced black olives, drained
1 cup cheddar cheese
fresh tomatoes, chopped
Green or  Red Peppers, chopped
Shredded lettuce
Sour cream
Directions:

Layer crumbled chips (enough to cover the bottom), chicken, cream corn, drained black beans Picante Sauce (or salsa), olives and cheddar cheese in a 1 quart dish. (I used a cake pan when doubling). Bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Allow a few minutes to cool. Serve with fresh tomatoes, peppers, lettuce and/or sour cream.
