Chicken Tortilla Dump Dinner

  • Level: Easy
  • Yield: 6 to 8 servings
  • Total: 55 min
  • Active: 20 min


1 tablespoon canola oil

Two 10-ounce cans diced tomatoes with chiles, such as Rotel

1 cup chicken broth

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

One 15.5-ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed

One 10-ounce bag frozen corn

5 cups shredded cooked chicken (from about 1 small rotisserie chicken)

12 small corn tortillas, cut into quarters

One 8-ounce block Monterey Jack cheese, shredded (about 2 cups)

1/2 cup sour cream

1/3 cup diced red onion 

1/3 cup loosely packed fresh cilantro, chopped 


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Brush a 9-by-13-inch casserole dish with the oil.
  2. Stir together the diced tomatoes with chiles, chicken broth, chili powder, cumin and salt in a large bowl. Add the black beans, frozen corn, chicken, tortilla wedges and half the cheese and stir to evenly distribute and moisten all of the ingredients. Transfer to the prepared casserole dish and spread into an even layer. Loosely cover with aluminum foil and bake for 25 minutes.  
  3. Raise the oven temperature to 400 degrees F. Remove the foil and sprinkle the top with the remaining cheese. Continue to bake until the cheese is melted and just starting to brown, about 10 minutes. Top with dollops of sour cream and sprinkle with the red onion and cilantro. Serve hot.
