chicken, spinach and tortilla bake

I created this recipe based on a similar recipe that never turned out quite right for me.  This one works much better. 🙂

Chicken, Spinach and Tortilla Bake

  • 3 C. cubed, cooked chicken
  • 8 corn tortillas, ripped into small pieces (or use crushed tortilla chips)
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1/3 soup can milk
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 of a 4 oz can of diced green chiles
  • 1 1/2 – 2 C. shredded cheese (cheddar or taco blend of cheese)
  • fresh spinach leaves, chopped (as much or little as your family likes)
  • taco sauce, optional (add to taste)

Grease a 2 qt. baking dish.  Mix together chicken, soup, milk, onion, chilis, spinach, and optional taco sauce.  Layer pan with 1/2 tortilla chips, then 1/2 chicken mixture, then 1/2 of the cheese.  Repeat layers, finishing with cheese on top.  Cover (you don’t have to, but I usually do) and bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
