Tina's Calico Chicken

Tina Brown


This is my version of a one-pot recipe I found online a few years ago, and I most often make it on camping trips, which is why I use canned ingredients (ease of transporting). It's a huge hit with the family, served with either tortilla strips or with cornbread.

4 oz
can of diced green chiles

Directions Step-By-Step

In a dutch oven, melt the butter over medium-high heat, and brown the chicken until the pink is gone.
Once the chicken is cooked, stir in the taco seasoning and coat the chicken well. Add all the other ingredients EXCEPT the cheese. Simmer over medium-low heat for approximately 1 hour, stirring occasionally. During the last 5 minutes of cooking, drop in the cheeese, mix lightly and let the cheese melt before serving.
