Chicken Fajita Casserole

Sunday, September 16, 2012

My friend Erin, who is also a momma of twins brought me several meals while pregnant and with new babies. It was SUCH a blessing to get such delicious meals and one of them she made, I requested the recipe for... little did I know that when she told me it was a Weelicious meal, I would later be cooking up a storm all from this website. The concept is healthy (well all aren't healthy, but all ARE made from scratch) and quick, easy and delicious meals that your whole family will love. They have baby food recipes all the way up to family recipes. Obviously, Luke and I are the only ones eating solid foods around here and I tell you EVERY recipe on this site is DELISH! I will be posting lots of recipes that we are trying here on my blog from weelicious, and this Potluck Chicken Fajita Casserole recipe is one of them...

This is what you will need:

  • 1 tablespoon vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 3 bell peppers (red, yellow, orange or green), sliced
  • 1 16-ounce bag tortilla chips
  • 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 12-ounce jars salsa verde or tomatillo salsa
  • 3/4 cup sour cream (low fat or regular)
  • 4 cups cooked chicken, shredded

You basically layer the following 5 layers in this order into a 9x13 casserole dish....

Layer One:

Yes, Tortilla chips... This will be your first layer. 

Layer two:

Onion/pepper mixture. You will heat the oil in a skillet and add sauté onions and peppers in the oil for about 5-6 minutes or until the just become soft.

Layer three:

Your shredded chicken. (I just shredded boiled chicken and added salt and pepper)

Layer four:

Shredded cheese

Layer five:

 Your salsa mixture. Mix the salsa verde and the sour cream in a large bowl and add as your fifth layer. 

So... You layer each layer twice and top with more cheese....

Cover with aluminum foil and bake at 350 degrees for 20 mins, then bake uncovered for 20 more minutes or until cheese is golden....

The chips soak up the salsa mixture and some stay crisp! It's a cross between a fajita and nachos.

Eat and Enjoy :)
