HOW TO MAKE A CHICKEN TACO CASSEROLE

Talk about easy to make for a quick weeknight dinner! With ready made green enchilada sauce and some cooked chicken, this hearty meal’s on the table in less than an hour. **Make Slow Cooker Shredded Chicken for the freezer and you’ll always have chicken for easy recipes.

INGREDIENTS TO MAKE EASY CHICKEN TACO CASSEROLE

  • Tortillas – flour or corn tortillas are both fine for this recipe.
  • Cooked Chicken – it’s a great way to use up leftovers.
  • Black Beans – be sure to rinse and drain the beans!
  • Tomatoes with Green Chilies – use the can that contains them both. If you don’t want the chilies, substitute a can of petite diced tomatoes. Sometimes we use fire-roasted tomatoes to change it up.
  • Corn – frozen corn kernels or canned both are good.
  • Taco Seasoning – use the packets or make your own Homemade Taco Seasoning.
  • Cheese – Shredded Mexican blend is our favorite.
  • Green Enchilada Sauce – use a brand you like, or make your won.

Tip – cut up and shred the meat from a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store to get easy cooked chicken. Blend white and dark meat for the best flavor.

Get started by poring some of the sauce in the bottom of the baking dish. Cut the tortillas in half and line the bottom of the pan with them. Turn them over in the sauce to coat.
