  1 tsp chili powder

  1 tsp ground cumin

  1 3/4 cups Swanson® Natural Goodness® Chicken Broth

  2 cans (10 3/4 ounces each) Campbell's® Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup (Regular or 98% Fat Free)

Directions

1 Place the chicken into a 4-quart slow cooker. Sprinkle with the chili powder and cumin. Pour in the broth.

2 Cover and cook on LOW for 8 to 9 hours* or until the chicken is cooked through. Remove the chicken to a cutting board. Using 2 forks, shred the chicken.

3 Reserve 1 cup liquid in cooker, adding additional broth, if needed, to make 1 cup. Stir the soup into the cooker. Stir in chicken.

4 Heat the oven to 350°F. Layer half the chicken mixture, tortillas and cheese in a 13x9x2-inch baking dish. Repeat the layers.

5 Bake for 30 minutes or until the mixture is hot and bubbling. Serve over the rice, if desired.

*Time-Saving: You can also cook the chicken on HIGH for 4 to 5 hours.

Recipe Tips:

Ingredient Note: We develop our recipes using a 4-to 5-ounce skinless, boneless chicken breast half per serving. However, there are a range of sizes available in-store, from the butcher counter to the meat case and the freezer section. Use whichever you prefer - just follow the recipe as written above for the best result. If you're using larger chicken breasts they may require a little longer cooking time.

Flavor Variation: You can stir in 1 can (about 15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained and 1 package (10 ounces) frozen corn, thawed, to the chicken mixture before layering and baking.
