I'm hopping on the MckLinky Blog Hop today because I have to tell you something funny. You know in the south - two of our core ingredients are : Cream of Chicken Soup and Cream of Mushroom Soup. I mean I can not think of many recipes that I have that do not involve one of the other or both.
So today I watched a snippet of Martha Stewart. I have never been a fan - she is just not my kind of down home cooking and decorating. Anyway - she had a girl on there making the recipe below which is a standard in my home and I nearly fell out when Martha said "what is that yellow stuff? Huh, I have never heard of Cream of Chicken Soup. I've heard of cream of mushroom but I've never tasted it." REALLY MARTHA??? I immediately changed the channel because Martha and I are clearly not one in the bond of love and southern cooking.
(Ya'll - I'm not bashing Martha - she is VERY creative and does amazing things.......I just thought it was funny! I'm NOT putting her down in any form or fashion. I promise I didn't mean it as mean)
So here is one of my favorites and you can find more on my recipe blog:
This recipe is SO quick, easy and good. It's great for your family or for taking to a potluck or a family needing a meal. YUM, YUM!
3-4 chicken breasts, boiled and cut into bite size pieces
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 can rotel (chopped tomatos and chilis) (you can find in the canned veggie aisle near all the tomato products)
1-2 cups cheddar cheese
Package of corn tortillas (small)
Tear the tortillas into small pieces and line the bottom of a pan. Mix together the soups, rotel and chicken and pour on top. Top with cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until cheese is bubbly. Seriously - it's that easy!
I usually serve with spanish rice (just a rice-a-roni mix) and/or a green salad
