Cream of Chicken Soup and Pace® Salsa come together to create a creamy Southwest style sauce that turns cooked chicken into something pretty special. Black beans, corn, tortillas and cheese make this one dish dinner even better.  With only 10 minutes of prep, everyone’s sure to love this, even the cook!  Why not make two and freeze one for another night.  Click on “recipes tips” below to see how.

  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup or 98% Fat Free Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • 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 Freezer Meal: 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

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

  • 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 and bubbling.

    I haven't made this dish yet. I was wondering if a person could use tortilla chips instead of tortillas? I have all the ingredients in the house, but the beans. I don't like them. So, could I use rice or something else in it? I would use olives too. And it sounds like it needs more chili seasonings.

      It’s important to note that using tortilla chips instead or tortillas may affect the texture of this recipe. If you don’t like beans, leave them out! Just remember – if you’re going to use rice instead, it may affect your baking time.

    In all, my hubby and I liked it (our toddler, not so much). Down side: recipe calls for 2 cups of cooked cubed chicken. Since we buy our chicken breast in bulk, we don't have pre-cooked/pre-cubed chicken, so I had to cut up and cook the chicken which added 20-30 minutes onto the preparation time.

    That may be the only reason I wouldn't want to do it again. Tasted very good.
