Ingredients

  • 1 1/4
    cups shredded Mexican cheese blend (5 oz)
  • 1/3
    cup milk
  • 1
    egg plus 1 egg white, beaten (about 1/4 cup eggs)
  • 1
    teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1
    pinch red pepper flakes
  • 1
    can (14.75 oz) cream-style corn
  • 1
    box (8.5 oz) corn muffin mix
  • 1
    can (4.5 oz) Old El Paso™ chopped green chiles
  • 1
    can (10 oz) Old El Paso™ mild green chile enchilada sauce
  • 3
    cups shredded or chopped deli rotisserie chicken
  • 1
    tablespoon Old El Paso™ taco seasoning mix (from 1-oz package)
  • Chopped green onions, chopped fresh cilantro and sour cream, for topping, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Generously spray 13x9-inch (3-quart) baking dish with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In large bowl, stir 1/4 cup of the shredded cheese, the milk, eggs, cumin, red pepper flakes, cream-style corn, cornbread mix and chopped green chiles until just combined. Spread evenly in baking dish.
  • 3
    Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until corn mixture is just set and edges are lightly golden brown.
  • 4
    Use fork to poke holes in top of corn mixture. Pour enchilada sauce evenly over top.
  • 5
    Toss chicken with taco seasoning mix, then sprinkle over the top. Sprinkle remaining 1 cup shredded cheese on top of chicken.
  • 6
    Bake about 15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
  • 7
    Top with chopped green onions, chopped cilantro and dollops of sour cream.
  • 8
    To freeze: Cool completely after baking, then cover tightly with plastic wrap and foil before freezing. When ready to bake, remove plastic wrap and foil. Heat oven to 400°F. Cover dish with just foil. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until heated through. Tip: If you plan to freeze your dish, I’d suggest baking it ahead of time in a non-glass dish--otherwise, you’ll want to let the dish thaw for a bit before placing it in the oven so the glass doesn’t run the risk of shattering.

  • Not a fan of green chile enchilada sauce? You can swap it for your favorite red sauce.
  • If you don't have rotisserie chicken, regular cooked shredded or chopped chicken will work just as well.
