In the mood for something chicken and cheesy. Any suggestions

2. Green chilies with onions and cheese too spicy? If not, I have a casserole for you.

Also includes zucchini, sour cream, corn tortillas and diced tomatoes. It's not at all spicy in my book, anyway.

6. I think that would be okay in the spice department.

 

My better half loves food but sometimes food doesn't love back.

I am very interested. Thank you

11. Okay, alter however you choose to make it easier:

My TexMex Lasagna

shredded cooked chicken or turkey
corn tortillas
olive oil
diced onions
fresh or canned diced tomatoes
Rotel tomatoes or diced poblanos
fresh sliced zucchini
sour cream
monterey jack cheese
parsley or cilantro dried leaves
Lawry's Seasoned Pepper
minced garlic

Shred baked or boiled chicken and put in bowl. Saute zucchini briefly and put in another bowl, 3 to 5 times more zucchini than chicken.

In a skillet saute onion and garlic but do not caramelize. Add diced tomatoes, Rotel tomatoes, parsley, Lawry's Seasoned Pepper, cheese and sour cream.

Simmer to a thick sauce while stirring. Soften tortillas in olive oil in another skillet and set aside.

In a glass baking pan, cover bottom and sides with tortillas. Make layers of chicken, zucchini, cheese sauce and tortillas, ending with sauce.

Place pan on cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees until set. Cool enough to cut into squares and serve.


I also make this without meat. You can cut out steps to simplify the preparation. There is never any left at parties and the people beg me to make it again.

10. Chicken tacos?

Begin with corn or flour tortilla in lightly greased pan; add cooked shredded chicken meat, veggies, and sprinkle shredded cheese on top; use low heat with covered until meat and veggies are hot and cheese is melted

I get best results by getting pan hot, turning down the heat, quickly assembling the unfolded soft taco, and covering until done

Chicken lasagna? Make spaghetti sauce, using cooked shredded chicken meat instead of ground beef. I get fine results without precooking the noodles: just use the dry noodles, but let everything sit a while before baking

12. Is mild salsa/picante sauce too spicy?

I take Pace Picante sauce and throw it in the crock pot with boneless chicken. At the end I add a package of shredded cheddar cheese and mix it like crazy.

Serve in Tortillas or on top of rice.

Pace Picante sauce comes in mild, medium and hot. I usually use half hot and half medium which is very spicy to me..... The mild is very tame.

You could probably do the exact same thing with a jar of pasta sauce.

13. that sounds really good. Thank you.

 

I think Mild Pace Picante sauce would be okay especially when mixed with cheese.

19. I cook it at least six hours

I cube the chicken and cook for six hours....but it could go for eight as well. I don't think you can really over cook chicken this way. If you are using the whole breast opt for the eight hours. Of course never cook food from a frozen state in the crock pot---That's what pressure cookers are for.

16. I made something really similar at home the other day.

I sautéed the apples and used ham and brie on good toasted bread.

Yummy.
