I made a dish for dinner the other night, and as I often do, I did it without using a recipe. My husband liked it so much he asked me if I remembered the recipe. My answer was yes, but that’s not to say that I will always remember or be able to recall the recipe. I thought I would write here so I will know where to find it.
My goal was to use up a chicken breast that was leftover from the previous nights dinner. I also thought I wanted to make a Mexican style dish.
So in a 2 quart casserole dish I layered the following:
1 can refried beans
1 can whole kernel corn
1 cup cooked white rice
1 can chopped green chili peppers
1 cooked and cubed chicken breast
I then poured 1 can of green chili enchilada sauce over it
I topped it with a mix of shredded cheddar and shredded Colby jack cheese
I put it in the oven and baked at 300 until it was warmed through probably about a half hour. I severed it with tortilla chips. I spiced mine up by adding salsa and my husband enjoyed his with parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.
This simple recipe made a nice dinner and was easily reheated for lunch the next day as well.
