(Also one of our family’s favorites…)

Ingredients

  • 1 large onion, finely chopped  (or, onion powder/flakes…which is what we use)
  • 2 celery ribs, finely chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 cups cubed cooked chicken breast (you can also use canned chicken for speed and ease!)
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) reduced-fat reduced-sodium condensed cream of celery soup, undiluted
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) reduced-fat reduced-sodium condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1 can (10 ounces) diced tomatoes and green chilies, undrained
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 12 corn tortillas (6 inches), cut into 1-inch strips
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese, divided
  • Velveeta cheese as desired, melted on top

Directions

  • In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, saute the onion, celery and peppers in oil until crisp-tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the chicken, soups, tomatoes and chili powder.
  • Line the bottom of a 3-qt. baking dish with half of the tortilla strips; top with half of the chicken mixture and 1 cup cheese. Repeat layers. Melt velveeta cheese and a little milk in microwave and pour on top.  Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until bubbly. Yield: 8 servings.

Note:  While it technically serves 8 people… you might want to double the recipe.  It’s THAT good!
