tortilla casserole

12 Jun

Stop reading this. Go get a pen and a piece of paper. You have to write this down.

My good friend Katie brought this dish to our house the week we had Cruz. Our small group, and others for that matter, were awesome in bringing us meals for a good couple months after Cruz was born. It was yet another way we were blessed by so many.

Katie told us that her mom has been making this for their family since forever and that it was a favorite in their house. She brought over a huge pan of it and thought it would definitely provide us with a couple of meals!

Great thought! Ya, it would have been great if we had any leftovers.

I’m embarrassed to admit that Jason and I ate the ENTIRE PAN that night- it was that good.

I immediately called her for the recipe and now we make this often in our house. It’s one of those dishes that I can see us still making for all of our kids someday. It’s that good. You have to try this. Anyone I’ve ever made this for immediately needs the recipe.

So I am thankful to Katie and to Katie’s mom for introducing us to this dish. It’s simple, it’s yummy and it really does make great leftovers.

If you can get it to last that long.


– 1 can cream of chicken soup

– 8 oz sour cream

– 1 small can green chilies (mild or hot- your choice- I use mild)

– dash of garlic powder and pepper

– 1/2 rotissere chicken, shredded (use the other half for another recipe!)

– 12 corn tortillas, torn up into small pieces

– 1-2 cups of shredded cheese, or more!


1. Preheat oven to 350º.

2. Mix all of the ingredients together (except the cheese) in a mixing bowl.

3. Place into baking pan and top with the shredded cheese.

4. Bake for 40 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

…. super easy and SO worth it!

** I also add a dash of Cholula seasoning to the mixture before baking. Jason and I like spices in our foods, so this gives it just a little extra zing! But it’s perfect without it too!
