Tortilla Traffic Jam

Emeril Lagasse for Good Morning America

This recipe is one created by Emeril for the 2001 Oscars in honor of
the movie 'Traffic'. It's "jam" packed with many great ingredients of
Southern California and Mexico where the movie is set.

"It's a yummy casserole that has repeated layers of tortilla chips on the
bottom, chicken pieces seasoned with chile powder, salsa, sour cream,
green chiles, onions, peppers and then two different cheeses - a mix of
Monterey Jack and Cheddar. Garnish with tortilla pieces that you have
broken up in a Ziploc bag and scallions."

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup minced onion
1/4 cup green bell pepper, small dice
1/4 cup red bell pepper, small dice
1 tablespoon minced garlic
3 cups tomato salsa
1-4 ounce can green chilies, chopped
4 cups tortilla chips (i.e.-Tostitos)
2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast
meat, seasoned with 2 teaspoons
Emeril's South West Blend and baked
2 cups sour cream
1/2 cup green onions, chopped
2 cups Monterey Jack cheese, grated
1 cup Cheddar cheese, grated

1. Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees F. In a medium-size sauté pan set over a medium-high heat, add the olive oil. Once the oil is hot, add the onions,
green peppers, and red peppers to the pan and sweat for 4-5 minutes, or
until the vegetables are tender. Add the garlic to the pan and sauté for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and let cool.
2. In a medium-size mixing bowl, add the salsa, green chilies, and the
sautéed onions and peppers. Set aside for the casserole. Sprinkle 2
cups of the corn chips in the bottom of a casserole. Dice the baked
chicken breast into 1/2 inch pieces. Add half the chicken to the cas-
serole and cover with 1 1/2 cups of the salsa. Place 1 cup of sour
cream on top of the salsa and sprinkle 1/4 cup of the green onions
on top of the sour cream. Spread 1 cup of the grated Monterey Jack
cheese and 1/2 cup of the Cheddar over the sour cream. Repeat the
layering process finishing with the grated cheese, and place the cas-
serole in the oven. Bake the casserole in the oven for 45 minutes and
remove. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
