Chicken Salsa Casserole by The Food Nanny

And we're off!  I've started my Food Nanny challenge and am so far very pleased.  Here is dinner numero uno:

Dinner #1: Chicken Salsa Casserole
Time: short
Price: $$$$
Servings: 6

My thoughts: A south of the border hit.
I really liked this dish.  I invited my mom over for dinner on the same night I tried this recipe out, crossing my fingers it would turn out.  And it did.  We paired this yummy Mexican dish with our famous trio: salsa, sour cream, and tortilla chips.  I'll be making this dish again.

What I loved: The texture from the corn tortillas and the Monterrey Jack cheese, instead of using plain ol' cheddar.

18 corn tortillas, cut into wedges
1 can water
3 chicken breasts, cooked, skinned, cubed
2 cans cream of chicken
1 can green chilies
1 pound Jack Cheese, grated

Combine tortillas, cream of chicken soup, can of water, chilies, and chicken in a 13x9 baking pan.  Cover top of mixture with one pound of grated Jack Cheese.  Bake at 350 for 30 min or until it is hot throughout and cheese is golden.

Just had this last night- it was good!! We didn't have the salsa, so it was a bit bland. With salsa it would be really good
