Chicken Fajita Burrito Casserole

I’m working with Velveeta at the moment so I thought a Chicken Fajita Burrito Casserole using Velveeta would be a great post!  And don’t forget to cut the cheese with me using Velveeta cheese!

I used red and green bell pepper to give it some color and flavor.  I used store bought tortillas which are fine but next time I will make my homemade flour tortillas for a better taste!  Slighty more work that I usually post here but it’s well worth it!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1pkg flour tortillas
  • 1 8oz. Velveeta Mexican Mild Cheese
  • 4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken breasts
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 green bell pepper
  • 1 onion, well half really
  • 1 can of cream of chicken
  • 1/4 milk
  • 1 can of black beans

You will also need the ingredients to make the Easy Spanish Rice! This consists of brown rice, salsa,  and butter.

DIRECTIONS:

Start boiling your chicken.  While chicken is boiling, chop up your onion and bell peppers; adding them to the chicken and boil until chicken is done.  In a saucepan, melt your Velveeta cheese with the cream of chicken and about 1/4 of milk over low heat. (saving and shredding some to add to the fajita burritos.) This will be the cheese sauce. While that is melting, take your chicken and peppers out of the boiling stock and let cool.  Add the brown rice & it’s ingredients to the stock that you boiled the chicken in.  Once your rice is done, spread it in a 9×13 casserole dish.  Pour the can of black beans on top. Or you can just mix the beans up with the rice!

Shred your chicken up and starting making your fajita burritos adding a little of the shredded velveeta or some of the cheese sauce inside.  Fold up and lay on top of the rice and beans.  Now pour the Velveeta Cheese sauce all on top of the burritos making sure to get it all covered.  Bake in oven for about  15-20 minutes at 350′.

This should serve 8 depending on your crew’s appetite!
