Chicken Tortilla Casserole is comfort food. When I was growing up my mom made several versions of tortilla casseroles, and I loved all of them. This casserole I put together is slightly different from my mother’s recipe. It’s a quick and easy version especially if you keep cooked or shredded chicken on hand like I do.
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 can chicken broth
1 can Rotel tomatoes
1 cup heavy whipping cream
salt and pepper to taste
3 cups chopped, cooked chicken
3 cups shredded cheese
18 corn tortillas
Wisk together the cream of chicken soup, chicken broth, Rotel tomatoes, whipping cream and seasonings in a large bowl.
Layer six tortillas.
Cover the tortillas with a third of the soup mixture.
Top with one cup chicken and one cup cheese.
Repeat for a total of three layers.
Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about forty minutes or until hot and bubbly. It’s yummy served with Mexican re-fried beans and guacamole!
Mmmmm…that sounds good. I might have to try that sometime.
That’s really similar to my mom’s “Viva Chicken” casserole, one of my childhood comfort foods. 🙂
It looks delicious all right. I think with the whipped cream it is even more fattening than my old standby recipe. But we didn’t worry about that back when you were home, and you don’t have to worry now either. Feel free to serve us some next time we visit, fattening or not!
This looks and sounds so delicious 🙂 I will have to try this one day! Kind of like a twist on lasagna with the layers – I bet my kids will love it.
