Savy's Favorite Casserole

It was so cold today...back down in the 30's. This is just unbearable after two days of such nice weather. On a brighter note, Savy has been using the potty like a pro! She has been dry without any accidents since she woke up on Friday morning...she was even dry when she woke up this morning. We're so proud of her!

It's my weekend to work, so I didn't do much of anything today. In fact, we were all pretty lazy today. After work I went to the market to get ingredients for a new recipe I wanted to try. Jon really liked it. Savy LOVED it! And when I say loved, I mean she ate THREE helpings....this is the girl who rarely eats more than 3 bites of even foods that she likes. Jon and I were shocked!

Savy's Favorite Casserole

Yes, I forgot to take the picture before we dug into smelled soooo good and we were sooo hungry. Savy kept asking, "Is it ready it ready yet?" while it was cooking. This is all that was left when we finished.

3-4 cups shredded (cooked) chicken (I used 2 cans of Hormel "chicken-in-a-can" for convenience)
1 can rotel tomatoes
1 cup light sour cream
1-2 packets taco seasoning
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 1/3 cups lower sodium chicken stock
2 cups shredded cheese (I used Mexican blend)
1 bag nacho cheese Doritos, crushed

In a large mixing bowl, combine first 6 ingredients (everything except the cheese and Doritos). Spread half the crushed Doritos in the bottom of a greased 9x13 baking dish. Then spread half the chicken mixture on top of them. Repeat with the rest of the Doritos and then the rest of the chicken mixture. Top with the 2 cups shredded cheese and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve with a dollop of sour cream.

Oh, something else new....we finally got a new freezer. We've been waiting for Costco to get these back in stock. Last night we went and purchased one.

It's pretty big....7 cubic feet. It fit perfectly in that little space in the laundry room. Jon didn't have anyone to help get it into the house. He actually picked this thing up by himself and carried it into the house. And I don't mean dragged it or pushed it...he picked it up and carried it. He's such a big, strong man...just one of the many reasons I love him!

I am so proud of Savy too!! I knew once she started using the potty, she would be a pro, she is so smart!! It is a miracle John didn't hurt himself carrying that big freezer. One thing for sure, he is much of a man! Nice freezer.

OK, you have to stop posting the casseroles and food that you prepare... It makes me so hungry. It always looks so great!
