How to make it

  • Cook ½ C of dried Navy beans in 1C of water until beans are starting to get tender, about one hour; yield 1C of cooked beans.
  • In a small dish mix the cumin, chili powder, coriander, and salt and set aside
  • Grease an appropriate size casserole dish; a deeper dish is better
  • Crush sufficient chips to cover the bottom of the casserole about ¼” deep
  • Drain the canned corn and add the cooked beans to the colander
  • Remove seeds from the peppers and chop into medium size pieces
  • Chop the onions and garlic and set aside in a dish with the peppers
  • Chop the tomatoes and cilantro and set aside in another dish
  • Cut the chicken into ½” cubes
  • In a large skillet add the olive oil and brown the chicken cubes; about half way through the cooking add 1/3 of the spices and turn the chicken until the cubes are coated with the spices; add the peppers, onions, garlic and another 1/3 of the dry spices; continue cooking until the chicken is done and the onions are translucent.
  • Remove the cooked chicken, peppers, onions, and garlic to a large bowl, add the mushroom soup and mix to combine; add the drained beans and corn; mix; add the tomatoes and cilantro; mix; add the remaining dried spices; mix
  • Add the cooked mixture to the casserole dish and tuck chips around the edges to complete the sides of a “crust”; squeeze the fresh lime over the top
  • Cover the top of the mixture with about ¼” of shredded cheese; garnish with avocado slices
  • Bake at 305 deg for about 30 minutes, until the cheese is melted and the casserole is thoroughly heated at the center; allow to cool for 30 minutes prior to serving
  • Serve with a good commercial salsa as a condiment

    You're welcome Ms GagaGrits (clever nick!) I try to post recipes I've developed myself over a couple of trials. Couldn't quite find a Mexican chicken casserole that quite did it for me so I eventually developed this one.
