  • Combine soup, diced tomatoes with chiles, sour cream, milk, taco seasoning, and cayenne pepper in a bowl. Add chicken and 1/2 of the cheese. Just before baking in the oven, add crushed tortilla chips and combine evenly. Put in a baking dish and sprinkle with the remaining cheese.

  • Bake, uncovered, in the preheated oven until hot, bubbly, and cheese is melted, about 40 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can use cream of mushroom soup instead of chicken, if preferred.
