This zesty chicken tortilla chip casserole makes a lot and my family loves it. You will definitely want to save this recipe. This is the perfect recipe for the busy family.


  • 4 to 5 cups chicken cooked and chopped (I bake a chicken and chop for this recipe)
  • 1 cup green onion chopped (can use regular onion)
  • 1 cup green pepper chopped
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 10.5 ounce can cream of celery soup
  • 1 10.5 ouncecan cream of chicken soup
  • 1 4 ounce can green chilis, drained
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 3 to 4 cups crushed tortilla chips
  • 2 cups shredded Mexican style cheese or cheese of your choice


  • You will need a large skillet. Cook the green pepper and onion in the oil. Add the tomatoes, celery soup, chicken soup, green chilis, chili powder, garlic powder, pepper, salt and cumin to the skillet. Mix well with a spoon and simmer about 10 minutes. Add a layer of crushed tortilla chips to a 9 x 13 baking dish. Next, add a layer of chicken and cover with half the soup mixture from your skillet. Sprinkle on 1 cup of the shredded cheese.
  • Add another layer of chips, chicken, and the rest of the soup mixtures. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes. Remove and add remaining cup of cheese. Return to oven for about 5 minutes or long enough to melt the cheese on top of the casserole dish. Makes 10 to 12 servings
