Chicken Tortilla Pot Pie

Don’t get me wrong…

I love me some chicken pot pie, but I hate to clean up the flour mess and really have a lot going on in my life.

Yes, I will make pie crusts on occasion, but not during a normal, day-to-day, busy mom week.

So, here’s my comfy food fix that gives me the yummy flavors of chicken pot pie without all the fuss.

And trust me, no one asks, “Where’s the crust?!”

Hearty Tortilla Chicken Pot Pie is a Family Favorite!

I LOVE making recipes that require little fuss — don’t you?

It gives me more time to spend with my family and enables me to get the house a little squeakier clean than normal.

It’s always a relief to spend less than an hour in the kitchen cleaning and cooking, isn’t it?

So you want to try it?

Oh, of course, I added a VERY yummy ingredient that is not in your traditional pot pie, but it should be.

It really should.

If you love my other recipes, you know I almost always include it.

Cheese!

In our family, everyone loves that ingredient. Because cheese makes life better. It just does.

Of course, to keep this recipe simple and easy, I just threw in some sliced cheese from the fridge — no grating necessary!  

This meal is ready in literally minutes!
