Hawaii Mom Blog: Chicken Tortilla Casserole

Chicken Tortilla Casserole

One of my Pantry Challenge dinners this month was a Chicken Tortilla Casserole.

I simply took some flour tortillas and cut them into fourths, layering them in the bottom of a 9x13 pan (I used 3 small tortillas total for the bottom layer).

I then spread some refried beans onto the tortillas, and then some chicken that I cooked in taco seasoning.  I sprinkled on some cheddar cheese, then repeated the tortillas, refried beans, chicken, and cheese layers.

I topped off the casserole with bottom-of-the-bag tortilla chips, more cheddar cheese, and olives.

I baked for 20 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

I didn't have any sour cream, but I did have guacamole, which was a great finishing touch, along with some chopped green onions.

This recipe is a great way to use up pantry items - and all those broken chips in the bottom of the bag!
