Southwest Chicken Bake

cookWe are always on the hunt for new recipes.  We get into ruts and it seems like we have the same old thing week after week.  In an attempt to grow our “cookbook” we are trying a new recipe every week for a while.  This one was new last week and was  a hit.  It’s even pretty good warmed up for leftovers.  Sorry no pictures this time. 😦


  • 3-4 Chicken breasts, cooked and diced. (you can use any chicken meat)
  • Salsa (recipe below or 1 cup pre-made)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups tortilla chips, crushed


  • 1 large can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 small (4 ounce) can of green chilies, diced
  • 1 can corn, drained
  • 1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1/2 onion, chopped
  • 3/4 tsp garlic salt
  • 1/8 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp salt

Spray 9×13 pan with cooking spray.  Mix chicken, salsa, and sour cream.  Spread layer of chicken mixture on bottom of pan.  Sprinkle with one cup of crushed tortilla chips and then one cup of shredded  cheddar.  Repeat one more time.  Bake at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.
