How to Make Creamy Chicken Green Chile Casserole

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350
    Cut up cream cheese to 1 inch cubes, (better if room temp) add to mixing bowl, add green chili sauce, green chilies, cumin and salt to taste. Mix until the cream cheese has blended in nicely.
  2. Add chopped chicken and mix.
  3. Spay 13 x 9 baking dish with Pam (or other non stick spray) Cut up tortillas into strips then cut in half again. Line baking dish with some of the tortillas evenly.
  4. Then add the rest of the tortillas to the creamy chicken mixture, mix until all the tortillas are coated.
  5. Pour into the the baking dish.
  6. Spread evenly and top with the cheese.
  7. Bake in your 350 degree oven for approx 30 - 40 mins, until bubbly hot! Cool for 10 mins then cut and serve! I think this might taste a little better if you top it with a little sour cream.
