How To Make Chicken and Potatoes Casserole

For this comforting casserole, you need the following ingredients:

  • Simply Potatoes Southwest Style Hash Browns
  • chicken fajita strips
  • chopped chiles
  • cream of chicken soup
  • sour cream
  • Pepper Jack cheese
  • tortilla strips

Ingredients for Fiesta Chicken Potatoes
To make this Chicken and Potatoes Casserole, get a large bowl and place 16 ounces of pre-cooked fajita chicken meat that has been cubed in the bottom.  (To keep meal preparation simple, just pick up a package of the pre-cooked, seasoned meat at the store.)

Add a package of Simply Potatoes Southwest Style Hash Browns, 12 ounces of cream of chicken soup, a cup of sour cream, and a can of diced chiles that has been drained.  Stir well and spoon into your favorite casserole dish.

Bake for 40 minutes and then top with some crushed tortilla strips.  (I buy a bag of strips in the salad section at the store and just break them up in the bag before opening.)  Bake for another 10 minutes and voilà – dinner is ready.
