It’s that special day of the week again my dear friends! Sunday has quickly approached and it’s time to sit down and have a nice family dinner together. What is cooking in your kitchen?
Well I know what’s cooking in mine and what’s cooking in all of my foodie friends kitchens! Tonight’s theme is Mexican baby! Oh ya, you heard me! I wanted to try something different because I’ve made Enchilada’s, queso dip, Empenada’s, taco’s, and even Chicken Enchilada Soup! I should have a Mexican Page! Well maybe just a Mexican Post naming my Mexican dishes. There has never been a time that I’ve made a Mexican dish and didn’t like it. So this time I wanted to make an actual meal out of it. Something different. I wanted to incorporate Queso with chicken!! Wala! I found this recipe and changed it up a bit to make it a full meal. I added corn and beans to it and served it with Broccoli to make it a great dish. Trust me you don’t want to miss this Fiesta!!
This week, Heather over at girlichef is hosting!! How cute of a name is that first of all! Thanks so much for hosting this great Fiesta Heather!! These dishes look amazing! You’ve got your drinks, your apps, your main dishes and your sweet endings! First let me show you what I’ve cooked up for you!
Chicken Con Queso
Adapted From: Food.Com
1 10 oz can of Cream of Chicken Soup
1 1/2 Cups of shredded cheese (I used 6 blend reduced fat)
2/3 Cups of evaporated Milk
4.5 oz Can of green chilis
2 Large Scallions, chopped
1 1/2 Cups of tortilla chips, crushed
1 lb of chicken breasts, chopped (You can also use left over chicken from another dish)
1 small can of corn, drained
1 can of black beans (I used Cannelini because it’s what I had)
Salt & Pepper
What to do:
Cook the chicken first using salt, pepper and red pepper flakes (this adds a little kick, it is a Mexican dish after all!) **This is where I would sprinkle the chicken with some taco seasoning next time I make this dish.)
While that is cooking, in a large mixing bowl, combine the soup, cheese, milk, chili’s, beans, corn and scallions all together. Add the chicken to the mixture once it’s cooked through and stir well. **This is also where I would stir in some more taco seasoning.”
Spray a casserole dish with cooking spray, crunch the chips and layer them on the bottom of the dish.
Bake at 350F for 20 minutes or until you see it bubble around the edges.
Dip in. Scoop. ENJOY!
