Chicken Chalupas Casserole

Chicken Chalupas Casserole

This recipe came from my Mom.  She made it and immediately knew it was something we would like.  She was right!  It was great!

This requires a little planning.  The casserole needs to be refrigerated overnight.  I did save a lot of time by using a rotisserie chicken (one of my favorite shortcuts).  This was one of the best Mexican enchilada style casseroles we’ve had in a while.  I loved the flavor of the cream sauce – the Worcestershire sauce made it for me.  These were even good reheated for lunch the next day.

  • 12 flour tortillas

  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tsp hot sauce
  • 1/8 tsp pepper

Put chicken pieces and half of the grated cheese in tortilla and roll up.  Lightly spray a 9×13 pan.  Lay rolled tortillas in the pan.  Top with remaining cheese and Rotel tomatoes.

Combine 1 qt cream, onion powder, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, ½ tsp hot sauce, and pepper.  Pour mixture over casserole and let stand overnight in the refrigerator.

Bake covered at 375 for 30 minutes.

  1. I attempted to make this and for some reason my half and half curdled during baking. Also, at the end of the 30 minutes, the inside was still freezing cold. I know that my oven is accurate, so I'm wondering what else I could have done wrong. Help!

  2. I'm glad you called it "enchilada" style too, because that was the first thing I thought of.

    I can't help but think this would be good would pulled pork (mainly because I have two butts smoking right now and one of them has a southwestern green chile rub).

  3. Going to try them all. Look so good and easy to make. Thanks, just hate to figure out every night what to make. You got it all here.
