Ingredients

  • 4 to 5 cooked, boneless, skinless chicken breast halves or 1 rotisserie chicken
  • 3 cans (14 fl. oz. each) reduced sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cans (10 oz. each) mild red or green chili enchilada sauce
  • 1 can (12 fl. oz.) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Milk
  • 2 cups matchstick or shredded carrots
  • 1 cup uncooked long or medium grain rice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 cups frozen whole-kernel corn
  • 1 1/2 cups broken tortilla chips
  • Fresh cilantro leaves, sliced green onions (optional)

Instructions

COMBINE broth, enchilada sauce, evaporated milk, carrots, rice and cumin in large saucepan. Cook over medium-high heat until mixture begins to simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until rice is tender. Add chicken and corn; stir well.

SPOON into serving bowls; top each serving with tortilla chips, cilantro leaves and green onions, if desired.

TIPS:
• Different brands of enchilada sauce may have different heat levels. A hotter enchilada sauce can be used if a spicier stew is desired.
• Freeze half the stew for another meal. Thaw in refrigerator and reheat in microwave or on stovetop.
