Chicken Taco Bake over Chips

Posted By Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom On January 4, 2010 @ 6:36 pm In $5 Dinner Challenge,Beans,chicken,Dairy Free,Freezer Friendly,Gluten Free,Recipes | 18 Comments

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!

2 cups shredded chicken ($1.50)
1 can Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilies (free [5]) Used this coupon [6] that is no longer active.

1-2 tsp ground cumin ($.05)
Salt and pepper to taste
