Chicken and Cheddar Tortilla Bake
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 25 min.
Since I was running behind schedule, I had to grab canned chicken from the pantry to save time. I also added taco seasoning to the refried beans to spice it up just a tad. Easy to throw together.
This wasn't anything special.....maybe using fresh tomatoes like one reader did, and homemade refried beans, etc. would improve the taste, but what we could taste mostly was canned items and there were some chunks of chicken throughout. All the ingredients are good in other things, but they just didn't come together in this. One thing I liked was the tortillas on top....I brushed them well with oil and they were nice and crispy.
I loved it! I used fresh tomatoes, regular canned corn, and added a can of diced chiles. I also used 1/2 cheddar and 1/2 pepper jack. Mu husband loved it too and we usually don't agree on the same foods!Definately going to become a family favorite
Although I love all of its ingredients, this casserole was very unimpressive. It didn't have very much flavor which I found surprising and the tortilla layer was just a gooey mess. Couldn't even swallow leftovers down the next day. Will not be making again.
I really liked this recipe, it was easy to make and tasted yummy both that night and as leftovers. I think the only thing I will change is instead of cubing the chicken I would shred it. Easier to layer that way.
Delicious and even better as leftovers. My husband asks for it constantly!
This was a really easy way to change up chicken night in my household, the family loved it. I substituted cumin for enchilada seasoning.
