Chicken Tortilla Chip Casserole

4 C crushed tortilla chips
1 can chili with beans
2 C cooked chicken (or 1 can chicken)
3-4 C grated cheese

2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 C water
1 C sour cream
2 or more T chopped grean chiles
2 or more T sliced or chopped olives

In a 9x13" baking dish, sprayed with non stick cooking spray, layer: 2 C crushed tortilla chips, chili, chicken, cheese, 1/2 the sauce, 2 C crushed tortilla chips, and remaining sauce. Cover with foil and bake at 350 for 1 1/2 hours. For the last 10 minutes of cooking, remove the foil and cover the top with cheese. Serve with additional sour cream and salsa if desired.

***For a healthier option use 1/2 C cheese total and no additional toppings. It is still plenty of cheese! I also use a large can of Kirkland brand chicken. With substitions, total calories is 2620 or 218/serving. Makes 12 servings.

  1. Ora, all of your dishes look so good! I love that you put the calories too. I make this casserole too but I use chili cheese fritos, so I should add a few more calories. Can't wait to try lots of your recipes and see what else you come up with!
