Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Spray 3-quart baking dish with cooking spray.
  • 2
    In 4-quart saucepan, melt 3 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Cook poblano chiles, onion and bell pepper in butter 8 to 10 minutes or until softened. Add garlic and 3 tablespoons flour; cook 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Add tomatoes, taco seasoning mix, 1/2 teaspoon salt and the pepper. Cook and stir 1 minute.
  • 3
    Stir in broth and half-and-half; heat to boiling over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until thickened. Reduce heat; simmer 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in 2 cups cheese. When cheese has melted, fold in sour cream and chicken. Transfer to baking dish.

    Meanwhile, in large bowl, mix 1 1/2 cups flour, the cornmeal, baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cut in 1/2 cup butter until mixture is crumbly. Stir in 1/2 cup of the cheese and the milk just until moistened. Drop dough by 12 large spoonfuls (about 1/3 cup each) on top of hot filling. Sprinkle top with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until casserole is bubbly and biscuits are golden brown. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    If you like a little added zing, add a diced serrano chile in addition to the poblano chiles, and proceed with the recipe.
  • tip 2
    Monterey Jack cheese makes a nice substitution for the Cheddar in this recipe.
