Happy Feast Day!

Today is the feast day of Our Lady Of Guadalupe.  Traditionally when I was growing up we would make some Mexican food, in remembrance of this special feast.  How we loved Mexican food then and we still do today.  I am glad that BAP and SSP love it as much as I do (and husband too).  I love carrying out this tradition in my own family.  This year I am going to make something new...I am sure that everyone will enjoy (I hope).  BAP may sneer at the green things (even though his favorite color at the moment - and most - is green.  However it sometimes changes to a different one.  Oh the joy of being 4!)

Fritos Ranch Chicken Delight
adapted from:

4 cups Fritos corn chips
4 cups cooked & cubed chicken
1 can (10 3/4 oz) chicken broth
1 can (10 3/4 oz) cream of chicken soup (will use a 'can' of this)
1 can (10oz) diced tomatoes with chilies - (or use a can of diced tomatoes+ a small can of diced chilies)
1 (8oz) bag shredded cheese
1 cup chopped onion
2 T vegetable oil

Cook onion in oil.  Add soup, tomatoes and broth.  Simmer 5 minutes.  Grease well a 9x13 pan.  Spread in a layer of chicken, chips, cheese and sauce (repeat until cheese is your top layer). Bake at 250 for 20 minutes.  Low oven temperature to 200 and bake another 40 minutes.
