Chicken Tortilla Skillet

This is a great Tex Mex skillet casserole that can be made in a short time and on the table for a busy and very hungry family. It can be made in the same skillet and baked in the oven, just add a salad and you have a great meal. Another great feature about this recipe is it can be frozen in a baking dish ready to go for another day, and I have baked it in small tins for a party. We love this Chicken Tortilla Skillet and sure hope you will enjoy it!

This Skillet Starts With Cooked Chicken Breast
I like to cook up several chicken breast and then chop them up. I then take 3 cups of the chicken in a freezer bag and freeze it.  Then when I am making a casserole or any dish that call for chicken it is all ready to go in the freezer.  For this recipe today I kept back 2 chicken breast for the casserole.
