Chicken Tortilla Casserole

I have to start this post off my saying this is probably one of my favorite casseroles I have made in a long time.  The flavors were perfect, and it makes great leftovers.  It is a little more time consuming then I thought with all the layers, but it is well worth it.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 tablespoons of flour
  • 1 cup reduced fat milk
  • 1/2 cup of chicken stock
  • 1/2 packet of taco seasoning
  • 8 oz of non fat cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup of salsa
  • 1.5 cups of black beans
  • 3 cups of cooked chicken breast (about a pound and a half)
  • 5 oz tortilla chips
  • 1 roasted red bell pepper chopped
  • 1-1.5 cups of shredded Mexican cheese

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  2. Season your chicken with Ms.Dash cooking salt and cook chicken on medium high heat for about 15 minutes until cooked through.

  1. Remove chicken
  2. Heat oil over medium high heat, and add onions, cook for 6 minutes
  3. Once onions are cooked add your garlic and flour and cook for 2 minutes
  4. Gradually add your milk and chicken stock, stirring constantly bring to a boil
  5. Remove from heat and add your taco seasoning, salsa and cream cheese, mix well till everything is combined ( I put mine back on lo heat to make the cream cheese melt faster)
  6. Spread enough of your milk mixture to coat the bottom of a casserole dish

  1. Layer with beans, half of your chicken and then half of your tortilla chips

  1. Layer a half cup of your milk mixture, the rest of your chicken, your red bell pepper and the remaining tortilla chips

    Top with the remaining milk mixture and shredded cheese

  1. Bake for 25 minutes or until cheese is melted
