Chicken Tortilla Bake is packed with amazing flavor, healthy, and guaranteed to make you want seconds! Weight Watchers friendly recipe- 4 SmartPoints!
Casseroles make the world go round, don’t you agree. They feed a crowd and make for amazing left overs. Whenever I’m unsure of what to make when we are having company, my husband always suggests a casserole. My Chicken Tortilla Bake is a delicious tex-mex casserole. Layers of homemade enchilada sauce, tortilla, shredded chicken, beans, peppers, spices, all topped with cheese. This is a Weight Watchers friendly recipe and each serving is 4 SmartPoints.
My love for casseroles is endless. They are great to feed a group of people (or feed two people for days) and make for delicious left overs. Another reason why I love casseroles is that anything goes! Just throw a bunch of random ingredients together and it somehow works in a casserole. My inspiration for this casserole is just that… I had a bunch of random ingredients and needed to make dinner.
This casserole bake is filled with delicious Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken, my homemade Roasted Tomato Enchilada Sauce, strips of corn tortilla, pinto beans, corn, peppers, spices, and of course, CHEESE! To speed the prep time for this recipe, I like to make a big batch of my Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken and my Roasted Tomato Enchilada Sauce on Sunday so that I have it readily on hand when I’m ready to assemble the casserole. Both of these recipes are freezer friendly, so if you really like to plan ahead (like me) make these a few weeks (or months) in advance and freeze!
The assembly of the casserole is a breeze! In a large bowl, mix the cooked shredded chicken, sautéed bell pepper and onion, frozen corn, canned green chilies, pinto beans, and Mexican spices.
Pre-heat the oven to 375. Spray a 9×13 casserole dish with cooking spray. Pour ½ cup enchilada sauce in the bottom of the dish and spread evenly.
Lay 9 tortilla strips on top of the enchilada sauce.
Spread ½ cup of the chicken & bean mixture on top of the tortilla strips in an even layer.
Pour 1 cup of the enchilada sauce on top of the mixture then sprinkle with ½ cup shredded cheese.
Repeat the above one time then layer the top with the remainder of the tortilla strips and cheese.
Cover with foil, bake for 20 minutes, then bake for another 5 minutes without the foil.
