Cache Valley Hearty Cheese Casserole

Spice up your next meal with a great recipe from Cache Valley® 

Cache Valley is a real place. A naturally beautiful valley in Utah. It’s that wholesome place that inspires Cache Valley® to create the rich, flavorful cheese that brings this recipe to life. 

You may not know that tomatillos are more than just “little tomatoes.” They’re a separate variety of fruit with their own distinct flavor, and every facet of that bold and slightly sweet taste comes to life in this roasted chicken enchilada casserole.

Hearty shredded chicken, delicious Cache Valley® cheese, and just the right amount of spice from a poblano pepper come together to make your next meal unforgettable.

Serves 12 | 360 calories per serving | 21g protein per serving | Total cook time: 35 minutes

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 medium poblano pepper
  • 12 tomatillos
  • 2 tbsp. Cache Valley® butter
  • 1 cup green onions, thinly sliced
  • 3 tbsp. flour
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 8 oz. light sour cream
  • ¼ tsp. chipotle powder, optional
  • 18 corn tortillas
  • 4 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 3 cups Cache Valley® Finely Shredded Four Cheese Mexican Shreds

Instructions:

  • PLACE oven rack 6 inches from the broiler and preheat broiler. Brush a cookie sheet lightly with oil. Spray a 13 x 9-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  • REMOVE and discard stems, seeds and pulp from pepper. Cut pepper in half lengthwise.
  • REMOVE paper husk from tomatillos and rinse them. Cut in half across the diameter. Place tomatillos and pepper cut side down on baking sheet and brush lightly with oil.  
  • BROIL for 6 to 8 minutes until lightly browned. Let sit for 5 minutes or until cool enough to handle. Chop and set aside.
  • RESET oven to 350° F.  
  • MELT butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat.  Sauté green onions until soft, about 2 minutes. Stir in flour until well blended. Gradually stir in chicken broth.  
  • BOIL on high heat, then reduce heat to medium and simmer until sauce has thickened. Add in sour cream and chipotle powder. Remove from heat and set aside.
  • BRUSH a small skillet lightly with oil as needed to sauté the tortillas.  Sauté each tortilla separately for about 10 to 20 seconds on each side until cooked through, but not crisp.
  • SPREAD ½ cup sauce onto the prepared pan. Layer 6 tortillas over the sauce to form a single layer. Spread tortillas with ⅓ of the tomatillo and pepper mixture, then top with⅓ of the chicken and 1 cup of the cheese. Repeat for a total of 3 layers, ending with cheese on top.
  • BAKE uncovered near the top of the oven for 35 to 40 minutes until bubbling and lightly browned.

Cotton Tails

Food Club Chocolate Chips Bag and Bowl of Pretzels with Marshmallow Bottoms that look like bunnies

It’s a Hoppy Easter with these marshmallow cotton tails. What’s better than a tasty and adorable treat?

Ingredients:

Food Club® Pretzels

Marshmallows

Food Club® White Chocolate Chips

Pink Food Coloring

Instructions:

Start by grabbing a baking sheet and lining it with wax/parchment paper. Lay out desired amounts of pretzels and place marshmallows on top.

Broil for 2-3 minutes or until marshmallows are cooked to your liking. Set aside.

Separate a 1/4 of the white chocolate chips out. Put both portions into microwave safe bowls and heat until melted. Color the smaller portion with pink food coloring. Add your melted chocolate into a plastic baggie. Cut the corner off for piping.

Lay out a separate piece of wax paper and pipe the shape of the bunny feet with the white chocolate. Let it dry and then follow with the pink colored chocolate to create the pads of the feet.

Take a piece of the large marshmallow and make into a small ball for the tail (you could also use mini marshmallows for this).

Plate your cotton tails and enjoy your adorable treat!
