Whats in the cupboard chicken casserole

Okay, so I had left over chicken and was looking in the cupboard and trying to figure out what to do with it. This is what I came up with. Mom liked it and said, "Write it down before you forget!" So here it is..

1-2 cups of shredded chicken
1 cup salsa (as hot or mild as you like it)
1 can diced tomatoes with chilis in them (like Rotel)
1 can cream corn
cheddar cheese
tortilla chips

Combine the salsa and shredded chicken.

In casserole dish, place a layer of crushed tortilla chips

Next, half of your shredded chicken and salsa

Next, the can of diced tomatoes

Next, some cheese (we like it cheese so I'm not giving you an amount here)

Next, more crushed tortilla chips

Next, (yep you guessed it) the rest of the chicken

Next, the can of cream corn

Little layer of crushed tortilla chips

As much cheese as you like.

Leave this to sit for at least four hours so that the juices and all help make the tortilla chips soft. Bake at 350 for 30-40 mins, covered (the time will differ on how thick your casserole dish is - just make sure its sorta bubbly). Remove the cover and let the cheese get a little brown. Let it sit at least 5 minutes and then serve.

I served it with a dollop of sour cream, some avocado and salsa.

**Special Note**
This is a good way to use of those old tortilla chips since them being crunchy isn't required!
