Southwestern Chicken Casserole

177

This is an easy weeknight casserole that your whole family will love. Even our pickiest eaters love it! We tried it the other night with Doritos crumbled over the top and it was a huge hit!

4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 c. mild or medium red enchilada sauce
1 (7oz.) can diced green chiles
2 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. pepper
2 c. rice, uncooked (calrose rice works great if you want to have layers that are more intact-- you can pat the layers down and it stays together better-- but long grain white rice works great too)
1 Tbsp. chopped cilantro and
1 Tbsp. lime juice
2 cans cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1 c. sour cream
1 1/2 c. mild or medium salsa
1 1/2 c. cheddar cheese, shredded
1 1/2 c. pepper jack cheese, shredded
1 can corn, drained
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
optional garnish: green onion, tomatoes, sour cream, crushed corn chips, or anything else you like!
In crock pot combine chicken breasts, enchilada sauce, green chiles, cumin and pepper. Cook on high for 4 hours. Take chicken breasts out of sauce and shred. Prepare rice according to package directions...

Skip store-bought cans, because you can't beat the sweet, savory and smoky taste of homemade baked beans with bacon and molasses. The old-fashioned beans cook slowly in the oven for hours, developing a rich, thick sauce. Baked beans from scratch are the perfect side dish for your next cookout or potluck, and a simple lunch or dinner entrée when paired with cornbread or Boston brown bread!

1 lb. dried navy or Great Northern beans
1/2 lb. bacon
1 medium onion
1/2 c ketchup
3/4 c molasses
2 T apple cider vinegar
2 t dry mustard
2 c chicken broth
kosher salt and black pepper
