Serves: 6


  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and chopped
  • 1 can (10 oz.) Rotel Diced Tomatoes and Green Chilies, drained
  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken breast
  • 8 oz. shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1 container (16 oz.) sour cream, divided
  • 2 tsp. taco seasoning, divided
  • 12 corn tortillas


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Add butter to a medium skillet over medium heat. Once melted, add the chopped onions and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Add the Rotel and cook for 1 minute more, then remove the skillet from the heat.
  • In a medium bowl, combine the shredded chicken, 3⁄4 of the shredded cheese, half the sour cream, and 1 teaspoon of taco seasoning. Mix well, then add the onion and Rotel mixture and mix to combine.
  • Spray a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray. Lay three tortillas on the bottom of the pan. Spread over 1⁄3 of the chicken mixture. Repeat. Top each chicken tortilla with a layer of tortillas. Sprinkle the reserved cheese evenly over the top. Bake for 40 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbling. Cool for 5 minutes.
  • In a small bowl combine the reserved sour cream and taco seasoning and mix well. Garnish each serving with some of the sour cream mixture.
