Snappy Casserole

Posted Mon, 02/06/12


I haven't red-flagged recipes from Campbell's Kitchen for quite awhile, but the following definitely deserves mention. It appears in today's issue of their newsletter ("Raid Your Pantry for Quick-Fix Meals"):


Monterey Chicken Tortilla Casserole

1 C tortilla chips, coarsely crumbled

2 C cooked chicken or turkey, cubed

1 can (about 15 ounces) cream-style corn

3/4 C Picante Sauce

1/2 C pitted ripe black olives, sliced

2 ounces (1/2 C) cheddar cheese, shredded

Chopped green or red pepper

Tortilla chips


Layer the crumbled chips, chicken, corn and Picante sauce in a 1-quart casserole. Top with the olives and cheese. Bake at 350-degrees F for about forty minutes or until the mixture is hot and bubbling. Top with the pepper. Serve with the chips.

Aside from my fondness for Mexican food, any recipe making good use of leftovers tickles my fancy.


Waste not, want not . . .
