Mexican Chicken Casserole

Updated on August 10, 2014

Mmmm

Before you begin:

Do you like chicken? That's the main ingredient. Do you like Cheese? There is a lot. Do you like Doritos? This recipe call for an entire family size bag.

If you are a health nut, STOP right here. This casserole contains high calories, high in fat and sodium. There isn't much nutrition to it, but the taste makes the difference.

What the heck, live a little!

Have a half serving if you are health conscious.

Recommendation

I wouldn't recommend this be eaten every night, but it makes a great family dish.

Are your in-laws coming over? Need a quick fix?

Prepare this dish ahead of time(A day or two). Cover with plastic wrap and aluminum foil then place in the freezer and take out when ready. Remove wrappings, set oven to 350 degrees. And put in oven for 45min-1 hour.
