Why is this recipe called Cowboy Chicken Casserole?  Maybe because we imagine cowboys aren't fussy in the kitchen and this is the perfect un-fussy one-dish meal?  Whatever the reason, you will love this super-easy recipe.  It tastes kind of like a chicken taco married a tamale pie, so if your family likes Tex-Mex, this is the one-dish bake for you!  Cream of chicken soup, chili, garlic and salsa blend into a creamy, spicy sauce bringing the chicken, beans, corn and tortillas together into a hearty and yummy dinner.  This Cowboy Chicken Casserole is a dish everyone (cowboys included) will love.


  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup or (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed 98% Fat Free Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup Pace® Chunky Salsa
  • 1/4 cup rinsed, drained, canned black beans
  • 1 can (about 15 ounces) whole kernel corn, drained
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 4 flour tortilla (8-inch) or 6 corn tortillas (6-inch), cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese


  • Tips

    • Make ahead and freeze for later! Assemble as directed, wrap tightly (add a layer of parchment on top under the foil so the cheese won’t stick) and freeze.  From frozen, bake, covered, for 55 minutes or until hot.  Or, thaw in the refrigerator and bake, covered, for 45 minutes or until hot.
  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 350°F.  Stir the soup, water, chili powder, garlic powder, salsa, beans, corn, chicken and tortillas in a large bowl.  Season with salt and pepper.

  • Step 2

    Spoon the chicken mixture into an 11x8x2-inch baking dish.  Top with the cheese.  Cover the baking dish.

  • Step 3

    Bake for 25 minutes or until the mixture is hot.
