Mexican Chicken "Lasagna" from Pampered Chef

  • 2 lbs. or 3 C diced or shredded cooked chicken (can substitute can chicken)
  • 1/4 C lightly packed FRESH cilantro leaves
  • 1 pkg. (8 oz) cream cheese
  • 2 C (8 oz) Monterrey Jack cheese, divided (I used Colby and it was still great)
  • 1 med. onion (about 2/3 C chopped)
  • 1 can (28 oz) Enchilada Sauce
  • 12 (6 in.) corn tortillas (I used tortilla chips)
1. Soften cream cheese ( I always leave mine out a couple hours before making) .Chop cilantro. Mix cilantro, cream cheese, and 1 1/2 C of cheese. Chop onion, set aside.

2. Spread 2/3 C of enchilada sauce over bottom of Deep Covered Baker (from Pampered Chef) (Using the deep covered baker, you can make this meal in the MICROWAVE! So sweet, doesn't heat up your house and tastes delicious). If you don't have one I'm sure you can cook this in the oven in a 9x13 pan.

3. To assemble "lasagna": Spread tortilla chips on top of enchilada sauce. Scoop half of the cheese - cilantro mixture over. Top with 1 C Chicken and 1/3 of the onion. Repeat layers one at a time.

4. MICROWAVE, covered on HIGH 12-15 minutes or until center is hot. Let stand 10 minutes.

Really yummy! Another recipe I'll make often just like the Pampered Chef Taco Ring.

Fudgy Oatmeal Bars

  • 2 C packed Brown Sugar
  • 1 C Softened Butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 1/2 C Flour
  • 1 tsp Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 3 C Oatmeal

  • 1 pkg Chocolate Chips
  • 1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 2 TBSP Butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
Mix first section like cookies which means to me mix sugar and butter first and then add eggs. Then add everything else. Put 1/2 to 3/4 in bottom of 9x13 pan.

Melt together right column in a saucepan on low heat. Pour over unbaked crust. Sprinkle clumps of remaining crust on top.

Bake at 350 for 25- 30 minutes.

I love this recipe. I make it often! Thanks to my old roommate Kelly. I got the recipe from her.

* I usually use 3/4 of the cond. milk and 1/2 - 3/4 of the chocolate chips because it get super super gooey and it just depends on my mood.
In the picture above I actually substituted 1 snack size applesauce (4 oz) in for the 1/2 the butter. I've noticed if you add applesauce to recipes; it makes things fluffier. For example I like to add 1 snack size applesauce into my pancakes. I follow the Krusteaz recipe as is and then add the applesauce....really yummy!
