Recommended Posts

Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Casserole


2 peppers (1 red, 1 green) finely chopped

1 onion finely chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 TB chili pepper

1 can diced tomatoes (14oz)

2 TB ketchup

1 TB chopped cilantro

3 small chicken breasts, baked and finely chopped

1 TB lemon juice

1 jar salsa

6 small (6"?) corn tortillas

1 c lf cheddar, shredded

lf sour cream, optional


Preheat oven to 350. Heat large nonstick skillet and cook peppers, onion, garlic, chili powder until softened. Add tomatoes, 1 c water, ketchup and cilantro. Cook 5 minutes.

In bowl combine chicken and lemon/lime juice. Stir in to tomato mixture.

Spread 1/2c salsa in ungreased 9x13 pan. Top with 3 tortillas. {2 side by side, 1 cut in half to fill in space) Top with chicken mixture. Sprinkle with 1/2 c cheese. Top with remaining tortillas. Spread with remaining salsa; sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Bake until cheese is melted; about 15 minutes. Garnish with sour cream.


The points for this will depend on the cheese and tortillas you use. My cheese was 14 pts, tortillas 1 pt each. This is 26 pts for the entire casserole; cut into 8 pieces and garnished with lf sour cream it is about 3.5 pts per piece. Its very filling!!

Tara, I wanted to thank you for this yummy recipe. I made it for dinner last night and it was a hit. Well, with everyone except DD - she's not a huge fan of tomatoes, peppers, or onions! LOL But she did enjoy the tortillas, chicken and cheese. She just picked around the veggies!


Next time I make it I'm going to add a can of drained black beans (accounting for the additional points though!).


Thanks again!
