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 looking at all the chicken noodles casseroles on the blog, and realized that I didn’t have a Mexican noodle casserole. I had to remedy that situation ASAP.
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?!?!?!
I used a package of No Yolks® Extra Broad Noodles in this casserole. I love using No Yolks® in all my noodle casseroles. The noodles are cholesterol free noodles that are always smooth, firm and delicious.
This Chicken Fajita Noodle 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!
There’s No Yolks and No Other.
