Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Chicken Frito Southwest Casserole

Want a little crunch in your casserole? Then try this! I mean, really....can you go anywhere but UP with Frito's? They are one of IT Guy’s favorite snacks so using them in a main dish was an excellent idea! Super good! And using a rotisserie chicken makes this incredibly easy but of course you can cook a couple of chicken breasts and get the same result. A seriously good casserole, right here!

Chicken Frito Southwest Casserole 
3 cups cooked, chopped chicken (I used a small rotisserie chicken)
1 10-ounce can cream of chicken soup
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
1 4-ounce can diced green chilies (I used a 7-ounce can)
1 taco seasoning packet
3 cups grated cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
1 9-ounce bag Original Frito's Corn chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 9x13 inch pan with cooking spray.
Scatter half of the Frito's in the bottom of the prepared pan.
In a large bowl, combine the soup, milk, sour cream, green chilies, taco mix and salt and pepper.
Spoon half of the cream mixture onto the Frito's.
Sprinkle with half of the cheese.
Repeat with the remaining ingredients.
Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes.
Remove foil and bake another 15 minutes.

Our ingredients!

Mix together the taco seasoning, 
sour cream, green chilies, soup, 
milk and salt and pepper.

Add the diced chicken and stir.

Put a layer of Fritos in the bottom 
of the bag. (I used half the bag) 
Then add about half of the creamy mixture and some cheese. Repeat.

Bake to perfection!

Yummy! (I'll let you in on a little secret....the edges are the best part!)
