This Mexican Chicken Casserole is super easy to make. Just mix all the ingredients together and layer with tortilla chips in a lightly greased 9×13-inch baking dish. Top the casserole with cheese and you are ready to bake.
I used some chopped rotisserie chicken (my secret weapon) and this was ready for the oven before it was preheated. WooHoo!! If you aren’t buying rotisserie chickens at Costco or Sam’s you are really missing out. They are my #1 timesaver for easy weeknight casseroles! I always have at least two pulled chickens in the freezer.
There is a little kick from a can of diced tomatoes and green chiles. If you are serving this to kids, just make sure to grab a can of the mild diced tomatoes and green chiles. You could even just use a can of diced tomatoes or leave them out all together.
Can I use Doritos in this Mexican Chicken Casserole?
