Blue Ribbon Recipe

What an easy and delicious chicken casserole. The flavorful meat mixture is made from chicken breasts, beans, cream soup, and, of course, cheese. Taco sauce and green chiles add a nice kick of spice. Flour tortillas create a crust, and the bits that are hanging over the casserole dish get nice and crunchy. Everyone will gobble up this chili chicken, so it will become an easy dinner that will go into your weekly rotation.
