Skinny Chicken Tortilla Casserole

Happy Friday!! We have had a touch of Spring weather this week and I have been loving it! However, this weekend winter is supposed to come back. I’m not really looking forward to that. I was getting my hopes up with the 70 degree sunny days we were having. So I decided to stay in and fix a Skinny Chicken Tortilla Casserole.

I found this recipe on the Betty Crocker website a long time ago and it has become my favorite meal! It’s very easy to make, too. You’re basically dumping everything into a bowl and stirring it all together, then dumping it all into a casserole dish and baking it. I love easy and quick recipes!

The casserole recipe calls for shredded cooked chicken breasts. I’m not really a fan of shredded chicken in casseroles like this, so after cooking the chicken I cubed it instead. The only time I really like shredded chicken is in my Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken Wraps.

How to make Skinny Chicken Tortilla Casserole

To make Skinny Chicken Tortilla Casserole you will mix together a can of cream of chicken soup, a can of chopped green chiles, sour cream, and milk in a large bowl. Then you will stir in your shredded or cubed chicken, tortilla shells torn into bite-sized pieces, and chopped bell peppers. Finally, you will stir in chopped tomatoes and some shredded cheese. (For the cheese, I use the Mexican shredded cheese blend. I love the way the cheeses taste all melted together. However, I have used both sharp and mild Cheddar cheeses and they are just as good.) After mixing up all the ingredients, you will spoon the mixture into a baking dish and cover with aluminum foil. It bakes in a 350 degree oven for about 40 minutes or so. Sprinkle some more cheese on top and cook uncovered for a few more minutes.

Doesn’t it look so delicious? You can find all the ingredients and instructions here.

I do have a problem trying to find sides to go with this dish, though. Sometimes I have black beans, but I don’t really like those too much. What would you serve as a side for this dish?

  1. Any kind of beans would go nicely with it….how about some lentils!! It looks lovely regardless what you have with it.😍

    1. Great idea!! Thank you! πŸ™‚

  2. I’m thinking avocado for this recipe,

  3. This reminds me of church potluck dinners! So many wonderful casseroles and sheet cakes. πŸ™‚

    1. Yum! I love church potlucks! πŸ™‚

  4. The casserole looks delicious. Perhaps adding some fresh cut vegetables or a salad.

    1. That’s a great idea! Thanks!

  5. My mom is the master of casseroles, we ought to try this out!
    My favorite one that she makes is pizza pierogi. I love casseroles.

    1. I bet that’s delicious! I love casseroles, too because there’s usually less dishes to wash. πŸ˜€

  6. Yummy! My Mom had a big Betty Crocker cookbook when I was a kid. A side of chips with either salsa, guacamole, or refried beans (or all 3) would go great with it! God bless!

    1. That sounds amazing!!! Thank you! I have an old Betty Crocker cookbook that I just can’t bear to part with. πŸ™‚

  7. Hi Michele, that looks yummy. I make a similar casserole with fajita chicken & serve it with yellow spanish rice & pink beans. (Goya pink beans are a fav go to for this vegetarian- super simple recipe on can.) Also guacamole salad is a nice addition if you like avocados. πŸ˜‹πŸ₯—πŸ₯‘πŸ₯—πŸ˜‹

    1. Wow! Thank you!! That sounds wonderful! πŸ™‚

  8. I think a side salad full of the healthier greens, almond slices, shredded carrots and some cut up red peppers would go great with this one. Looks like a quick casserole. I’ll have to try it – once my oven is fixed. Six months and counting without it. *sniff*

    1. That sounds really good!! Oh no! I hope it gets fixed soon. That can be a real pain. πŸ˜”

      1. It is but it’s on our list to buy with our refund this year. Hopefully anyhow

  9. MMMM! Looks so good! I love rice and refried beans with my mexican casseroles. And of COURSE guac.

    1. Rice and refried beans would compliment this dish very well! Thank you!!

  10. Oh yum, yum, yum! I would love a plate of this! I’d probably serve this along some rice. Maybe put the rice down first in a little mound and then scoop the casserole over top? Could be delish!

    1. That sounds like a good idea! Thank you! πŸ™‚

      1. πŸ‘πŸ»

  11. Looks tasty! I might have to try this one πŸ™‚ You could pair it with chips and pico de gallo!

    1. Oh that sounds good! Easy, too! πŸ™‚ Thank you!

  12. Oh boy! If we could download food …(sad!)

    1. That’s a great idea! πŸ˜€

    Looks like cheesy deliciousness!!

      1. The Eclectic Contrarian

        I’m getting more cheesy in my old(er) age.. and I like sweets more than when I was young(er)

        1. I’m the same way – cheese and bacon everything! And I always want something sweet after a meal.

          1. The Eclectic Contrarian

            Cheese and bacon! The peanut butter and jelly of savory dishes.. you’re making me hungry lol!

          2. πŸ˜€ I’m making myself hungry, too!

          3. The Eclectic Contrarian

            You got skinny chicken casserole!

  15. I have no words to comment on this yuuuummmyyy dish, I only got my tears and my stomach drums singing now lol the picture said it all Michelle 😍 thanks for sharing this delicious recipe πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘

    1. You’re welcome! I’m glad you enjoyed it! ❀️

      1. Will cook it once I’m back home😘

  16. Ah I love black beans! I actually only discovered their existence a few months ago.
    I’ve no clue what side would go well with that dish (which looks really tasty, by the way). I’d probably just eat it with garlic sauce, cause I like to add garlic sauce to almost every dish πŸ˜€

    1. I’ve never tried garlic sauce. Maybe I should add this to my list of things to try! πŸ™‚ Thank you!

  17. I have a similar chicken enchilada recipe that I love, and I usually just serve it with a green salad…you have my tummy rumbling!

    1. A side salad would go great with this! Thank you! πŸ™‚

  18. Looks so yummm!!!
    Thanks for sharing… and a Happy Valentine’s day πŸ™‚ ❀

    1. Thank you so much! Happy Valentine’s Day! <3

    1. Michelle

      You’re very welcome! Thank you for visiting mine as well.

  23. Oh, that looks so good!!!!

    1. Michelle

      Thank you so much!

  24. Hi Michelle, I would do just a plain vegetable like string beans just steamed, broccoli, any green vegetable just either steamed or sauted very plainly because the casserole has already so much flavor. Looks real good. And thank you for stopping by at my blog A Sweeter Life, great to meet you.

    1. Michelle

      Oh that sounds great!! I’ll keep that in mind. Thank you! It’s great to meet you as well!

  25. Ooooh, this sounds delish! To go with? Oh I could see just having a simple salad as a compliment. Hmmm. Riced cauiflower mixed maybe with some corn would be good, too!

  26. I wouls love to try this dish

    1. Michelle

      It is delicious! I could have it every night. πŸ™‚
