I got this recipe from my good friend Suzi. It's quick, easy, and delicious. Perfect for a last minute meal idea when you are feeling rushed.
1 box of Chicken Rice-A-Roni. Cook according to directions on box.
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1 can of deboned chicken (12.5 oz can)
4 oz of cream cheese, softened
2 cans El Paso chopped green chili peppers (4.5 oz. ea)
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 sleeve Ritz crackers
3 tbsp butter, melted
Mix prepared chicken rice, cream of chicken soup, chicken, cream cheese, and chili peppers. Spread in an 8x8 baking dish. Top with cheese.
Melt butter in a microwave safe bowl. Crush sleeve of Ritz crackers, mix cracker crumbs with butter. Sprinkle on top of cheese layer.
Bake 350 until bubbly. (About 30 - 40 minutes)
NOTE: I only make it with one can of chili peppers because my kids do not tolerate spiciness very well.
