Zesty Chicken Tortilla Bake

This week we found ourselves short on grocery money because of an emergency root canal, so we decided to cook from the pantry, when I saw I had all the ingredients for this and the pic looked really good,
I decided to try it! :)

Zesty Chicken Tortilla Bake
(this recipe was pulled from Kraft foods food & Family magazine the holiday 09 edition)


1/2 C Miracle Whip Dressing
1/2 C Flour
3 C Milk
8oz shredded cheddar cheese, divided
1 1/2 lb. Boneless Skinless chicken Breasts, cooked and cut into bite sized pieces (used two breasts)
1/2 C chunky salsa (used a bit more after taste testing)
1/2 C chopped fresh parsley (I used half that amount in dried parsley)
16 Flour tortillas (we used 13)


Preheat oven to 375

mix dressing, flour in medium saucepan with whisk until well blended. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil on medium heat, stirring CONSTANTLY;

I am a messy cook!

Cook and stir until thickened. All 1 Cup of cheese; cook until melted, stirring constantly. Reserve 1 Cup sauce.



Stir in Chicken, salsa and parsley into remaining sauce; spoon 1/3 C sauce mix down the center of each tortilla. Roll up. Place seams side down, in each 13x9 pan (2) baking dishes sprayed with cooking spray; top with reserved sauce and remaining cheese.

Bake 25min or until heated through.

Ok, so after getting the salsa etc mixed in, I tasted it and wanted more salsa so we added 1/4 C more, I also wanted a spicier... flavor so I tossed in some taco seasoning to try to make it more spicy. Also the recipe only made 13 for us not 16 and I used one 9x13 dish and one much smaller.

Hubs rated it a 3, I rated it a 2.

Sorry folks, I really wanted it to be good, it sounded good, but it just didn't come through, we had so many left overs we invited the neighbors over to taste test with us, they also thought it was a 3.

  1. Yum! I tried making something similar just a couple weeks ago, but I added a little low sodium taco seasoning to add a little mexican flavor.

    Very good!
