I love this recipe. My piano teacher first shared it with me several years ago, but her version included salsa and fried onions. I didn't think they went well with the overall flavor and texture of the main dish, so I took 'em out and just left it with the tortillas, chicken, green beans, cheese, and cream of mushroom.

I've made many other casseroles, but this one in particular sticks out as my favorite for several reasons.
  • It's cheap: tortillas ($1), can of green beans ($0.50), can of cream of mushroom ($1), chicken breast ($4), and cheese ($3) all cost close to $10 total, and you won't use all of the ingredients to depletion (you'll have some tortillas and cheese and chicken left over).
  • It's fast: preparation takes 15 minutes, baking takes up to 30. You can have enough food for your friends/family in less than 60 minutes.
  • It's delicious: most people like cream of mushroom and anything that goes with it, so this recipe is sure to sit well among a general crowd.
  • It's hearty: a single serving will fill you up by itself, and just imagine serving this with a side like a salad or some bread!
If you live alone, this will make enough food to last you several days. If you have guests, it's the perfect dish as it'll serve quite a few people, especially if you double the ingredients and use a larger dish. I don't know how healthy it is, but it's certainly better than a lot of recipes that call for a lot of oil and butter (this one only calls for Pam).

If you like green beans and cream of mushroom soup, then you'll probably enjoy this recipe.

Thanks! It is really good, and the good thing is you can modify it however you like without really changing too much of the flavor.
