I have been serving this rich and zippy chicken casserole for years, and it's a favorite of my family and friends. It disappears quickly at bring-a-dish gatherings, too. —Thom Britton, Three Rivers, Michigan


  • 4 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 pound Velveeta, cubed
  • 2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) condensed cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1 can (10 ounces) diced tomatoes and green chiles, undrained
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 package (14-1/2 ounces) nacho cheese tortilla chips
  • Optional: Sliced jalapeno pepper and diced tomato


  1. In a large bowl, combine the first 7 ingredients; mix well. Crush chips; set aside 1 cup for topping. Add remaining chips to chicken mixture. Spoon into a greased 13x9-in. baking dish; sprinkle with reserved chips. Bake, uncovered, at 350° until cheese is melted and edges are bubbly, about 30 minutes. Serve with sliced jalapenos and diced tomatoes if desired.
