A signature Ro*Tel recipe--a creamy, cheesy and easy casserole with that special 'kick' coming from Ro*Tel tomatoes and green chilies


  • PAM® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 1/4 cup Fleischmann's® Original-stick
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion

  • 2 cups chopped cooked chicken breast
  • 12 corn tortillas (6 inch), torn into bite-size pieces
  • 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (2 cups = 8 oz)

We enjoyed this. I did top it with black olives. I will probably use reduced salt condensed soup next time. Anxious to take to as carry in dinner.

Very easy to make. Has anyone else ever goofed and forgotten to tear the tortillas? I layered mine like lasagna.

This was my first "do it alone" dinner for my family - over 40 years ago and we love it just as much now! I like the Rotel tomatoes in this recipe, saves ti and no tears from the hot chilis. :o)
