Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Ok guys this is my new rendition of the chicken enchilada,” casserole style” :) It is super simple and makes an incredibly yummy mixture with a little kick, for little money, very little time, and can be used/ cooked/ eaten in multiple delicious ways!

Ingredients:

1 Rotisserie chicken (simple truth from Kroger is one of my favs- already cooked, just peel the skin and pull off the chicken)

1 (16 oz) thing of sour cream

1 (8 oz) bag of cheese

1 can of rotel (if you want more spice you can go for a “hotter” flavor- I used mild)

1 jar of queso cheese ( I use the white cheese)

 

Instructions:

peel away skin of chicken and pull chicken off

mix sour cream, cheese, 1 can of rotel,pulled  chicken and 1/2 jar of queso (feel free to add the whole thing, I just never have). it will add more moisture, will be cheesier, and more spicy.

stir mixture until well blended

OPTIONS:

#1 )spread approx. 1/2 the mixture in a 13 x 9 greased pan and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes until cheese is melted. you can make “low carb chips” from a low carb tortilla  (I use extreme wellness, low carb, high fiber wraps- from Kroger, Food City, Ingles, Publix, or Wal-Mart; make sure to get one with no more than 5-6 net carbs). I BOUGHT A PAMPERED CHEF CHIP MAKER; YOU CAN FIND THEM AT BED BATH AND BEYOND, ON-LINE,  AND I THINK TARGET AS WELL…. CUT THE WRAP INTO 1/8TH TRIANGLES, LAY IT ON THE CHIP MAKER, SPRAY WITH OLIVE OIL AND ADD A LITTLE SALT….MICROWAVE FOR 1 1/2 TO 2 MIN (DEPENDING ON MICROWAVE POWER) AND YOU WILL HAVE A SUPER TASTY LOW CARB CHIP. (you can do without the chip maker but it makes it more crunchy!) you can also enjoy over a bed of greens or shredded lettuce and make into a taco type salad! super yummy! I drizzled a small amount of queso over mine at the end for added moisture over my salad and used it like a dressing, salsa would work as well!

you can crumble up the low carb chips on top or underneath the chicken mixture before baking, OR you can use as a “scoop” to scoop up the chicken mixture and eat it like a dip :)

#2) use the above mixture and place on low carb wraps to make chicken enchiladas. will make approx. 24. can cook appropriate amount and freeze the remaining before cooking (or after) .

#3) I did a casserole with 1/2 the mixture and the remaining mixture I ate randomly throughout the week with dipping raw veggies such as carrots, broccoli, and mini bell peppers in it, enjoyed  it over a salad, with some low carb chips for a snack or meal, or its super yummy just by itself! You could also freeze the remaining mixture to make a second casserole at a later date.

The mixture goes a long way and can be used in various different ways. Feel free to freeze the remaining mixture in a freezer safe container and pull out at your convenience.

It would be super yummy as a stuffed pepper mixture as well! the options are endless! :) Go and Enjoy!!! and consider making this as a dish for Thanksgiving with raw veggies for dipping instead of our typical  traditional high carb casseroles that we all roll out over the holidays! :)

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
