Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F
  • Heat a large skillet over medium/high heat.
  • In a large bowl, toss the cubed chicken in olive oil, taco seasoning, and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Toss the coated cubed chicken into the skillet and cook for approximately 7-10 minutes, or until fully cooked through. Make sure to flip chicken as it cooks. Set aside.
  • In another large bowl, stir together the soups, tomatoes, chiles, beans, cilantro, and ¾ of the Mexican blend cheese. Stir in the cooked chicken.
  • Start by placing 1/3 of the crushed chips in the bottom of your casserole dish. Then top with ½ of the chicken mixture.
  • Top with another layer of chips and then the rest of the chicken mixture. Put your last layer of chips on top and then cover with the remaining cheese.
  • Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes or until hot, bubbly, and melty.
