Foodie Friday

The work week is at an end and the parties can begin!!  Well ok in a few hours but yay the weekend is knocking at my door!  Im so excited to be spending time outside in the beautiful weather before it gets too hot to enjoy it, I cant wait to hang out with some really cool people and I especially cant wait to stuff my face with brazillian steak!

Today  I want to share a recipe I made this week that was very tasty and made a lot of left overs (which is the picture I have below, I keep forgetting to take pictures of it before we eat it, sorry!) and having leftovers is very important in my house.  It was really easy to make so lets get this party started!  I added some notes for you so you can have the original recipe but also know what I did to make it my own.

 Texas Ranch Chicken Casserole
(A Taste of Home recipe)
Servings: 8   Prep Time: 25min   Cook Time: 30min       Difficulty: Easy

  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 celery ribs, finely chopped
  • 1 medium green pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, finely chopped (I left this out)
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil (I used olive oil because its better for you)
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 cups cubed cooked chicken breast (I used 3 large cans of canned chicken)
  • 1 can cream of celery soup
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can (10oz) diced tomatoes w/green chilies, undrained
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 12 corn tortillas (6 inches), cut into 1-inch strips (I didnt use all of the strips but I used a pan that was a little too small)
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese, divided

In a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray, saute the onion, celery and peppers in oil until crisp-tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the chicken, soups, tomatoes and chili powder.
Line the bottom of a 3-qt. baking dish with half of the tortilla strips; top with half of the chicken mixture and 1 cup cheese. Repeat layers. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until bubbly.

1 cup equals 329 calories, 12 g fat (5 g saturated fat), 65 mg cholesterol, 719 mg sodium, 31 g carbohydrate, 3 g fiber, 26 g protein.

I hope you enjoy this very flavorful casserole and have a fantastic weekend!
