    A great family friendly recipe that is quick and easy, not to mention tasty! You could take out the chicken and it would still be great.


    • 1 cup (4 ounces)) shredded 4-cheese Mexican blend cheese
    • 1/3 cup fat-free milk
    • 1/4 cup egg substitute or 1 egg
    • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
    • 1 (14 ounce) can cream-style corn
    • 1 (8.5 ounce) box corn muffin mix (like Jiffy)
    • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies, drained
    • 1 (10 ounce) can red enchilada sauce (such as Old El Paso)
    • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
    • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream


    1. Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees.
    2. Combine 1/4 cup cheese and next 7 ingredients (through chilies) in a large bowl, stirring just until moist.
    3. Pour mixture into a 13X9 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.
    4. Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until set.
    5. Pierce entire surface liberally with a fork; pour enchilada sauce over the top.
    6. Top with chicken; sprinkle with remaining 3/4 cup cheese.
    7. Bake at 400 degrees for another 15 minutes or until cheese melts.
    8. Remove from oven; let stand 5 minutes.
    9. Cut into pieces; top each serving with 1 tablespoon sour cream.

          It's terrific! I like a kick, so I upped the chili powder to 1/4 tsp. and used Hot enchilada sauce rather than mild. (Old El Paso). I also added some garlic powder. I sauteed the chicken in a little olive oil with salt, fresh black pepper and more garlic powder which made a terrific crust on the chicken. I think I finally have a party dish which is easy, inexpensive and really attractive. (I t hink it would be good Vegetarian too- with dark red kidney beans.)
