Tasty Tuesday--Happy Mardi Gras!!!

King Ranch Chicken Casserole

1 large onion, chopped
1 large green bell pepper, chopped
2 Tbls. vegetable oil
2 cups chopped cooked chicken (to save time I use the Swanson's canned chicken chunks, drained)
1 can cream of chicken soup, undiluted
1 can cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
1 (10-ounce) can diced tomato and green chiles
1 tsp. chili powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. garlic powder

12 (6-inch) whole-wheat tortillas
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese, divided

Preheat oven to 350
Saute onion and bell pepper in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in chicken and next 7 ingredients; remove from heat
Tear tortillas into 1-inch pieces; layer one-third of tortilla pieces in bottom of a lightly greased 13x9 inch baking dish
Top with on-third of chicken mixture and 2/3 cup cheese.
Repeat layers twice
Bake for 30-35 minutes
