1 (10 3/4-ounce) can cream of chicken soup, undiluted

1 (12-ounce) package nacho cheese-flavored tortilla chips
6 cups chopped cooked chicken

Drain spinach well, pressing between paper towels.

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chopped onion, green onions, and jalapeño; sauté until tender. Remove skillet from heat; stir in spinach, soup, sour cream, and ground cumin.

Layer half each of tortilla chips, chicken, spinach mixture, and cheese in a lightly greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish. Repeat layers, ending with spinach mixture.

Bake at 350° for 10 minutes; sprinkle evenly with remaining cheese, and bake 10 more minutes or until cheese is melted. Garnish, if desired.
