Mexican One Dish Dinner

Readers' Recipes (featured column)
submitted by Lyn Anderson

This is a great recipe that goes over very well in my family of 7 and contains all the nutrients one needs for a great dinner. All my kids (ages 16, 14, 12, 7 and 4) love it.

For our large family we use the following amounts:


1 c. of cooked cut up chicken (no skin) - possibly left over from a previous barbeque the night before
2 cans of drained black beans
1 large can of drained kidney beans
1 can drained corn or 1 cup of frozen corn
1 large jar of salsa (mild to medium usually is the best for the kids)
2 c. of shredded Mexican cheese or shredded Cheddar
A couple handfuls of Tortilla chips (can be stale) or 5 sliced tortillas (doesn't matter if it's corn or flour) cut into bite size pieces


Mix all the ingredients together, reserving at least 1/2 of a cup of the cheese and putting it on top. Place in oven at 350 degrees for 30 - 45 minutes until heated thoroughly.

You can serve this with more tortilla chips or even roll the mixture into tortillas for different variations.
