Chicken Taco Bake over Chips


While I was stocking up the freezer, I cooked a few whole chickens in the slow cooker.  One of those times, I combined some of the shredded chicken with a can of Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilies, some frozen corn, black beans and ground cumin.

Mix. And Freeze.

Thaw. And Warm.

So simple…I love it!

I found some tortilla chips in the pantry.  You see. My Dad was here recently visiting Tyler, and well, he has a *thang* for chips and salsa!  And by *thang*, I mean that he eats them practically daily. So we’re using up the leftover chips here!

Pile the Chicken Taco mixture on top of some tortilla chips and melt some cheese over the top. That’ll do!

    Erin those chicken taco chips look awesome! My hubs and I love to eat appetizer/finger food for supper every once in a while…pop in a movie and enjoy as a family. And chicken nachos is a nice change up from beef. Great recipe.

    I did something similar with turkey since I got turkey so cheap.

    I baked an extra turkey for New Year’s.

    A portion of that turkey was added to rice, a can of Rotel, a can of corn, and water. The first day it was a casserole with cilantro mixed in. The 2nd day it was nacho’s with cheese on cilantro on top.

    My husband and 2 year old loved it!!!!.

    Thanks so much for this recipe! I’m going to use the last of my leftover Turkey in this. I know the kids will love it just because it has chips. Funny how they decided what the will and will not eat.

    I linked to my chicken quesadilla recipe, but I’ve never used Mr. Linky before, so it just says “Lori” instead of “Quesadillas!” Oops!

    I know that I am 9 months late in responding to this post…but your dad can come to our house anytime he wants because I would live on chips and salsa. For reals. :)
