Hi. My Photoshop is not working. It makes me sad, and it makes me not be able to put a new post on until my hubby gets to it this weekend. But I got into my routine of posting on this blog and I decided to do a ‘blast from the past’ post. This is by far the most popular recipe on my blog, much thanks to foodgawker and Pinterest of course. What did we all do before Pinterest btw?
Anyway, I thought this would be an appropriate post to repeat this week because it is a perfect Super Bowl dish. For the whole nine yards make/get a seven layer dip and chips, some salsa and guacamole, side of refried beans and rice and you are going to have a very happy party!
2 tbsp of vegetable oil
1 lbs chicken breast, chopped to bite pieces (can use shredded chicken too)
4 to 5 cups of Mexican blend cheese
1 can of cream of celery
1 can of cream of chicken
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1/4 cup canned and chopped green chilies (drained), lately I started using up to 1/2 a cup!
small corn tortillas
1 tsp cumin
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
Brown chicken in a pan on 2 tbsp of oil. Season with cumin, salt and pepper.
In a bowl combine cream of celery, cream of chicken, sour cream and green chilies.
Prepare the dish you will assemble the lasagna in. Put 1/2 cup of cream mix on the bottom of the baking dish and spread. Layer a row of tortillas followed with cream mix, chicken and cheese. You should be able to make 3 layers like this. Last layer doesn’t need chicken, just a ton of cheese. :o)That is the best part!
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees and let it bake for about 20 minutes or until cheese is nice and melted and golden brown on top…
Ok. There is another best part. This freezes great. I love dishes I can double up and freeze and take whenever I want for a full ready meal.
From lots of comments left by people on the original post I’ve learned it tastes great with addition of can of Rotel tomatoes, I personally like it without, but many people posted they loved it like that. When I want to add some tomatoes to it I usually add it in a way of dalop of salsa on the top.
Also, it’s been made with both regular flour and whole wheat tortillas with success so that is something to think about if you are not a fan of corn tortillas. I obviously am.
Play with it. Add sauteed peppers or onions. Or add beans, refried or whole. Make this version or your own, I pretty much guarantee that everybody likes this dish!
