Mexican Chicken Casserole
Wowzers! If you are looking for a recipe with a little bit of kick this definitely has it in loads! This Mexican Chicken Casserole has a kick from the Rotel diced tomatoes. Don’t worry, it won’t make your upper lip bead with sweat, but it provides some bang when you want it! Now, I use the regular Rotel, but if you want to kick up the heat a level go for the HOT Rotel!
I’m Midwestern, we do things mild 😉
This is the second time I’ve made this recipe actually. The first time I completely forgot to get a picture of it so I just couldn’t post it without a picture now could I? That was ok because I got to make it again and enjoy another meal of it.

Mexican Chicken Spaghetti
Now, like I said before I’m Midwestern, aka from Minnesota. Around these parts we call casseroles “Hot Dishes”. Do you know what a Hot Dish is?
Essentially it’s just a casserole, but after I started to blog I had to retrain myself to call a Hot Dish a casserole. It was tricky, but now I’m finally there for the most part but it still sounds a little foreign coming out of my mouth.
Now, you can totally call this Mexican Chicken Hot Dish or Mexican Chicken Casserole. I will know what you mean either way!
Can you freeze Mexican Chicken Casserole?
You bet! This dish can be made ahead and frozen. Leftovers taste even better on day two! I love a great meal that offers so much flavor, but is easy and affordable.
This is a great pantry meal! Print off this recipe and tape it on the fridge. Next time you buy a rotisserie chicken, this is the perfect meal to make with the leftovers!
