boneless, skinless chicken breasts
yellow onion, chopped (see my tip for tearless onion chopping)
4 oz. diced jalapeños
10.5 oz. cream of chicken
14 oz. cut spinach
tortilla chips, doritos, fritos corn chips
cheddar jack, colby jack, or monterey jack cheese
Boil chicken for about 30 minutes. Once done, chop or shred. You can also use leftover roasted chicken.
Drain spinach of juices, if you don't want you casserole to be really spicy, drain the jalapeños as well
In large pan, melt butter and sauté onions and jalapeños until tender, about 5-7 minutes
Add your seasonings, and cream soup. Stir well
Add chicken and spinach, mix well.
Add in cream cheese and mix well.
Put a thin layer of the mixture in the bottom of a 13x9 casserole dish.
Next layer it with crushed chips of your choice, then cheese. Repeat this until dish is filled, ending with chips and topped with cheese.
Bake in preheated oven for 15-20 minutes or until casserole is heated thoroughly. Enjoy!!
