A delicious Mexican inspired chicken and pumpkin tortilla bake recipe, that’s an absolute hit in my house – in fact, it’s one of my hubby’s favourite meals!
I recently had a complete blank when I was trying to think of my husband’s favourite dinner. He just generally loves anything I cook; lasagna, roasts, anything Mexican or pasta. I finally remembered I made this Chicken Pumpkin Tortilla Bake a while back and he said it’s up there as one of his favourite dinners.
This is a super easy dinner to make, you simply mix most of the ingredients in one pan on the stovetop until the pumpkin is soft.
Then stir through the chicken, I used a BBQ Chook, however you can poach and shred your own chicken to save a few dollars. I describe this bake much like a lasagna, but instead of pasta, you use tortillas. It’s super easy to make and assemble, and tastes delicious!
Instead of white sauce, you use enchilada sauce. Layer and repeat! Topping with cheese and baking in the oven until golden.
I serve this Chicken Pumpkin Tortilla Bake with a simple salad and some garlic bread.
This is a great dinner to make ahead of time so you are prepared on a busy school night.
