Tex - Mex Vegetarian Chicken or Beef Nacho Casserole

We just can't have enough recipes for Tex - Mex Cuisine in Texas. We also eat a lot of Nachos. Here's a way to enjoy it all in one casserole.
This could also be made substituting vegetarian cooked ground round for the chick'n tenders.
And of course it can be made non vegetarian with 3 C of diced cooked chicken breast or sauteed ground beef.

Tex - Mex Vegetarian Chicken or Beef Casserole:

1 TBS vegetable oil
1 green bell pepper, diced
1 red bell pepper, diced
1 C diced onion
1 (12 oz.) bag of Quorn Chick'n Tenders
3/4 C water
1 (1 1/4 oz.) packet of Taco Seasoning
1 C sour cream (8oz.), room temperature
1 (4 oz.) can of diced green chiles
Tortilla Chips
2 C shredded pepper jack cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a skillet , heat oil on medium heat and saute the peppers and onion for 5 minutes.
Add Chick'n Tenders and cook until they begin to brown.
Add water and Taco Seasoning, stir and cook for 10 minutes.
Fold in sour cream and diced green chiles.

Spray a 9"X13" baking dish with a vegetable cooking spray.
Place a layer of  tortilla chips in the dish.
Cover the chips with a layer of half of the chicken mixture.
Top with half of the Pepper Jack Cheese.
Repeat with another layer of Chips, Chicken and Cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

Peace in the Kitchen!
