I love this time of the year. The leaves are falling, the weather is cooler, and comfort foods fill our tummies. It’s also a busy time of the year with family, shopping, and school activities like basketball. Today I’m sharing Santa Fe Chicken Casserole, both a convenience & comfort dish.
When cooking boneless chicken breasts, I have learned to cook extras for leftovers, salads, and for a quick meal solution. There’s no science to this recipe but there’s one very important ingredient that ties it all together; PHILADELPHIA Santa Fe Blend Cooking Creme. I’m loving all the cooking cremes I’ve tried so far, with the Savory Lemon & Herb being my favorite. The Santa Fe Blend was the perfect choice for this southwestern inspired casserole. It has tortillas (something we eat around here often), cheese, beans and chicken! Lots of good stuff thrown in a dish, or in this case, layered. It’s quick, it tastes good, and it’s perfect for getting your family in to eat and out the door for their basketball game. If you have a favorite cooking creme, I’d love to hear about it, and what recipes you’ve made using them. Enjoy!
