    Default Chicken Fajita Casserole

    Prep Time: 20 min
    Total Time: 1 hour 15 min
    Makes: 6 servings

    1 can (16 oz) Old El PasoŽ refried beans
    1 can (15 oz) tomato sauce
    1 package (1 oz) Old El PasoŽ fajita seasoning mix
    1 package (9 oz) frozen cooked Southwest-seasoned chicken breast strips, thawed
    8 Old El PasoŽ flour tortillas for soft tacos & fajitas (6 inch; from 8.2-oz package)
    1 bag (1 lb) frozen stir-fry bell peppers and onions, thawed, drained
    2 cups shredded Colby-Monterey Jack cheese blend (8 oz)


    1. Heat oven to 375°F. Spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish with cooking spray. In medium bowl, mix refried beans, tomato sauce and fajita seasoning mix. Stir in chicken.
    2. Spread 1/2 cup of the bean mixture over bottom of baking dish. Arrange 4 tortillas, overlapping if necessary, in baking dish. Top with half of remaining bean mixture, half of the stir-fry vegetables and 1 cup of the cheese. Repeat layers with remaining tortillas, bean mixture, stir-fry vegetables and cheese.
    3. Cover baking dish with foil. Bake 30 minutes. Uncover; bake 15 to 20 minutes longer or until hot and bubbly. Let stand 5 minutes before cutting.

    High Altitude (3500-6500 ft): Bake covered 35 minutes. Uncover; bake 10 to 15 minutes longer

    Substitution:
    You can also use Old El PasoŽ flour tortillas for burritos, which are 8 inches in diameter.

    Success:
    If the 6-inch tortillas you're using are thick, use one 15-ounce can plus one 8-ounce can tomato sauce. When arranging tortillas in dish, cut 2 in half to fit, overlapping only if necessary. Bake covered 30 minutes. Uncover and bake 20 to 25 minutes longer.

    Variation:
    If you like your food a little spicy, turn up the heat by using Monterey Jack cheese with jalapeņo peppers rather than the Colby-Monterey Jack.

    Special Touch:
    While the casserole bakes, fill small bowls with salsa, sour cream and chopped avocado so everyone can dress up this casserole to his or her taste.
