The Lone-Star Spin on a Classic Chicken Dinner
This Tex-Mex addition to the casserole canon combines the usual baked cheese with some zippy add-ins: chili powder, roasted peppers and cumin. And the protein here is smoked chicken, but you could also use a rotisserie bird. You mix the chopped meat with cooked onion and bell and poblano peppers; then layer tortillas, the chicken and vegetables and not one but two kinds of cheese: Monterey Jack and cheddar. The finished dish embodies comfort—with a kick.
