Sombrero Bake

Green chilies and hot pepper sauce bring a little zip to this Southwestern-style supper that makes great use of leftover cooked chicken. Mary Tallman sent the recipe from her Arbor Vitae, Wisconsin kitchen.

    This is sooooo good. I only had a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies, so I used that for the fresh tomato and canned green chilies and I used the liquid from the can for part of the milk. Also, I only had smoked hot pepper sauce so I had to use that. I will definitely make this again.

    I really liked this simple but very tasty meal. Hearty comforting flavor. I simplified it a little bit by just dolloping corn bread muffin mix on top.
