Mexican Chicken Casserole Top

School is almost back is session!  Already?  Yes!  As I sit at my computer, our son is actually standing out in the heat at marching band camp, and he’ll be starting school in just 2 weeks!  For me, that means it is time to stock up on plenty of back to school groceries and come up with some easy meal ideas.  The other day I talked about a few of my go-to breakfast options, and today we’re talking dinners!  Since Noah has brand practice right after school, this means I need meal ideas I can whip up rather quickly after he gets home from band practice.

Pace and Swanson at Walmart

I recently took advantage of these coupon deals.  In particular, I got a jar of Pace Picante Sauce and a box of Swanson Broth.  I found both products in the same aisle at Walmart.  The aisle features a variety of condiments as well as Latino, Italian, and Asian cuisine products.

Mexican Chicen Casserole


Mexican Chicken Casserole

Mexican Chicken Casserole


1 - 1.5 boneless, skinless chicken breast (shredded - enough to give you 2.5 cups or so)

2 cans Campbell's Cream of Chicken Soup

3/4 cup Swanson Broth

1 - 1/4 cup Pace Picante Sauce

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 tablespoon garlic salt

1 bag tortilla chips, crunched

additional cheddar cheese for topping


Boil a few pieces of skiness, boneless chicken breasts on your stove top. (In post cases, I do 3-4 chicken breasts, depending on size OR 7-8 chicken tenderloins.) Remove chicken from pot. Chop and shred chicken; then set aside.

Meanwhile in a large bowl, mix together 2 cans of cream of chicken soup, Swanson Broth and Pace Picante Sauce. Add chili powder and garlic salt. Mix until well combined. Stir in chicken and cheese.

Crush a bag of tortilla chips. (I use a 13 oz bag.) Grease a 13x9 baking dish, using cooking spray or stick butter. Pour half the bag of chips in to the pan. (Or use however much you need to cover the bottom of the dish.)

Pour casserole mixture over the chips. Next cover casserole mixture with the remaining chips. Finally sprinkle the top lightly with cheese.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. When 5 minutes remain in the cooking time, sprinkle on a little additional cheese. Remove from oven and let set for about 5 minutes for serving.



If you like this casserole, you can also leave out the chips and use the casserole mixture for burritos!

You can also save time by boiling your chicken the night before, or use Swanson's canned white meat chicken instead of fresh chicken.

  1. This looks tasty! I often roast a whole chicken then wonder what to do with the leftover meat, I think this recipe would be perfect for it! Thank for the great idea. [client]
