Chicken Pot Pie gets a makeover in this semi-homemade recipe that comes from Betty Crocker's website. I love the idea of the crunchy tortilla chip topping.
There is lots of room for variation or ways to make it more economical.
3 cups Progresso® chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 medium carrots, cut into 1/4-inch slices
2 shallots, finely chopped (1/2 cup)
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tablespoons Old El Paso® taco seasoning mix (from 1-oz package)
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup whipping cream
2 cups shredded deli rotisserie chicken (from 2-lb chicken)
1 can (15 oz) Progresso® black beans, drained, rinsed
1 bag (12 oz) Green Giant® Valley Fresh Steamers® Niblets® frozen corn, thawed
4 cups crushed tortilla chips
1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend (4 oz)
Heat oven to 375°F. In 4-quart saucepan, heat broth over medium-high heat. Remove from heat; cover to keep warm.
In Dutch oven, melt butter with 2 tablespoons of the warm broth over medium-high heat. Add carrots, shallots, garlic, taco seasoning, pepper and salt. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until carrots are tender. Gradually add flour, stirring with whisk. Cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in whipping cream and remaining warm broth. Heat to boiling; add chicken, beans and corn. Reduce heat; simmer uncovered 5 minutes, stirring occasionally, until slightly thickened.
Spoon mixture into ungreased 11x7-inch (2-quart) baking dish. Top with crushed tortilla chips. Sprinkle with cheese.
Bake uncovered 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
