We love making chicken noodle casseroles for dinner. They are easy to make and can be made ahead of time for an easy weeknight meal. I was in the mood for Mexican food, so I decided to make a Chicken Fajita Noodle Casserole. Chicken Fajitas are my favorite Mexican dish, so I was excited to see how the casserole turned out. Well, it turned out delicious! I mean seriously delicious! Chicken, fajita seasoning, bell peppers, onions, noodles, sour cream, cream of chicken soup and cheese! How could it be bad?!?!?!

This is super easy to make. Start with cooking the egg noodles. While the noodles are cooking, sauté some chicken tossed in fajita seasoning with bell peppers and onions. Finally, combine sour cream, cream of chicken soup, Mexican cheese, the cooked noodles and chicken mixture. Spread into a baking dish and pop it in the oven.

This casserole can be made ahead of time and refrigerated or frozen for later. This makes a ton, so you can split it between two pans and freeze one for later. LOVE being able to pull a casserole out of the freezer for a quick weeknight meal!

Feel free to top the casserole with your favorite taco toppings. I like to add a dollop of sour cream and some homemade salsa. We serve this casserole with some black beans, green beans, or a chopped salad. Here are a few of our favorite recipes from the blog that go great with this yummy chicken casserole:
