Southwest Chicken

Nancy Borremans

I was told this by friends in AZ and have never had a written copy. I adapt the amounts for the number of people and add extra enchilada sauce if I want to serve it over rice.

Serves 16


Qty Unit Ingredient
6 lbs Chicken Fingers or Sliced Boneless Breasts
4 15 oz cans Black Beans
16 Green Onions, chopped
4 15 oz cans Black Olives, sliced
2 lbs Shredded Cheese
2 bags Taco Chips, crushed
2 15 oz cans Enchilada Sauce


  1. Layer chicken in a casserole and dot with butter.
  2. Bake covered at 350 for 30 minutes.
  3. Pour off the fat. (I keep a little.)
  4. Then layer black beans, green onions, ripe olives, shredded cheese, taco chips and enchilada sauce.
  5. Bake uncovered another 30 minutes and serve.
