Velveeta Chicken Tortilla Bake

velveeta tortilla bake recipeMy family loves any type of food that has Mexican inspiration.  You’ll often find us dining out at a number of local Mexican restaurants, but when we get a craving and don’t feel like getting out, it’s usually either a taco or nacho night.

A couple of nights ago I was staring at VELVEETA®, Ro*Tel® and boneless skinless chicken breast and needed to come up with something that would be easy to make and that would appeal to the children.  While I was brainstorming, the idea of a casserole type dish came to mind so I decided to go that route.

In the end we had a pretty fabulous Velveeta Chicken Tortilla Bake!
