Dinner for neighbors: One Dish Mexican Meal

Posted Jan 14 2009 12:00am

It is so nice to know that our neighbors are such caring and kind people.  When a neighboring family recently lost a loved one, everyone got together and came up with meals for the family for a while.  Last night was our night to make dinner.  People had signed up for every different type of food except Mexican, so I took it!  Then I realized why you don’t sign up to bring Mexican to someones house, it is not easy.  My plan was to make tacos and so they could make their own tacos, but then I could not figure out how to bring over all of the parts without just bringing bags of groceries (dropping a bag of groceries at someones house is not helpful).  So then I thought about quesadillas but they need to be warm and they aren’t very filling.

After consulting with my mom and Brady, (and searching the internet) I came up with this recipe.  I didn’t know if it would be good, but it would serve the purposes:

One Dish Mexican Meal

  • 2 cans of 98%ff cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can of 98% ff cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1 tsp. cumin
  • 2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/2 c. chunky salsa
  • 1 -2 c. cooked chicken
  • tortilla chips
  • 1 c. cooked brown rice
  • cheese for topping (if you prefer)

This can be made the night before it is eaten and left in the fridge.


One side of this had cheese and the other side doesn’t.  This was ours!

Like I said, we didn’t know how this was going to be, but we actually loved it!  Brady was really surprised by how much he enjoyed it!  I will definitely be making this again. Next time, I think I will add beans to the soup mixture!
