  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup or 98% Fat Free Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1/2 cup water or Swanson® Chicken Broth
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup Pace® Chunky Salsa
  • 1/4 cup rinsed, drained, canned black beans
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh corn kernels or frozen corn kernels
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken or shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 6 (6-inch) corn tortilla or 4 flour tortillas (8-inch), cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 cup shredded Cheddar, Monterey Jack or Mexican blend 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.
    • Add some finishing touches! Try garnishing this dish with chopped cilantro, a dollop of sour cream or plain Greek yogurt, or a side of avocado wedges and a squeeze of lime to complement the Tex-Mex flavors.
  • 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.
