Lost for ideas and not much in the house, I had to depend upon my culinary education to come up with this in a pinch. The kids came to the table and asked what was for dinner and I told them I did not know, I just threw it together. To my amazement, they loved it! I hope that you will like it just as much. Feel free to tweak it and make it better, but please do share with me. :)

How to Make Green chili and chicken mock tamale pie

Step-by-Step

  • 1Prepare Rice-A-Roni per directions; however, simmer until just set. It will finish cooking in the oven.
  • 2Boil chicken until done.
    Remove from water and let rest about 5 minutes.
    Cube into bite sized pieces.
    Put into a medium sized mixing bowl.
  • 3Add Cream of Mushroom soup in with the chicken.
  • 4Pour some oil from chilies into a medium sized baking dish; coating the bottom.
  • 5Pour the remaining chili oil in with the chicken.
  • 6Measure the milk in the Cream of Mushroom can to 3/4 can. This also gets all the soup out for you. :)
    Add milk in with the chicken mixture and stir.
  • 7Place a layer of corn tortilla shells on the bottom of the baking dish.
  • 8Pour Mexican Rice-A-Roni on the first layer of tortillas.
  • 9Add another layer of corn tortilla shells.
  • 10Pour the chicken mixture on the second layer of tortillas.
  • 11Open the Chilies and cut one side to lay flat. Lay each of them to cover the chicken mixture.
  • 12I did not have cheese, but this would be a good place to add some. I had a little to much liquid with my chicken, so I added some left over Jasmin rice pilaf I had left from an earlier meal. If you have this problem, you can use unprepared/lightly prepared Minute Rice in a pinch (easy, a little goes a long way).
  • 13Bake in a 375 oven for about 40 minutes, or until heated through.
    Remove and let stand about 10 minutes.
