Description

The ease of a casserole with the taste of a Tex-Mex tamale. I loved this! It even tasted better as leftovers the next day.

Ingredients

  • 1 ounce, weight Monterey Jack Cheese, Shredded
  • 1 ounce, weight Colby-Jack Cheese, Shredded
  • 2 ounces, weight Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Shredded
  • ⅓ cups Fat Free Milk
  • ¼ cups Egg Substitute
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • ⅛ teaspoons Ground Red Pepper
  • 14-¾ ounces, weight Canned Cream Style Corn
  • 8-½ ounces, weight Jiffy Corn Muffin Mix
  • 4 ounces, weight Canned Chopped Green Chiles, Drained
  • 10 ounces, weight Canned Red Enchilada Sauce
  • 2 cups Cooked Chicken Breast, Shredded

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400ºF. Spray a 9″ x 13″ baking pan with cooking spray.

Toss the 3 cheeses together.

Combine 1/4 cup of the cheese mixture, milk, egg substitute, cumin, red pepper, corn, corn muffin mix and chilies in a large bowl; stir just until moist. Pour mixture into baking dish.

Bake for 20 minutes or until set. Pierce entire surface liberally with a fork; pour enchilada sauce over top. Top with chicken, sprinkle with remaining cheese.

Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and let stand 5 minutes.

This was really good! My boyfriend already demanded that it gets put in the regular rotation. I didn’t really stray from the recipe outside of using a little more cheese that what it called for (we LOVE cheese). Will definitely be making this one again!

This was really yummy. I did vary the recipe by using a different combo of cheeses I had on hand and also by using leftover chicken taco meat. The recipe came together very quickly with minimal mess. I typically shy away from using boxed/processed ingredients, but I was not disappointed by this recipe. It is a keeper!
