Dinner time or party food…this works for either. It can be served as a warm, hearty casserole or as a fabulous party dip. Either way it is SO GOOD!

I like to use rotisserie chicken and just shred and cut it up. Or use any leftover cooked chicken. I chop it up fairly small to make for easy scooping.

Add in salsa, tomatoes, black beans, corn and all the spices and mix it all together.

In a separate bowl mix the refried beans with salsa.

Now layer half the chicken/veggie mixture, refried beans, cheese…then remaining chicken/veggies and top with remaining cheese. Stick tortilla chips around the edges and throw it in the oven.

Throw it in the oven and bake.

Spoon over tortilla chips or just dip in! Top with taco sauce, avocados, sour cream and cilantro.
