This mexican casserole is almost a throw together meal and it’s full of flavor!

I prepare everything the night before, keep it refrigerated overnight, and put it in the oven when I’m ready to feed the masses!

You will notice that I don’t have a lot of pictures for this recipe. That’s because you pretty much cut and dump the ingredients into a dish and cook it! How nice is that?!

Recipe for Mexican Casserole

Step One: Preheat the oven to 350° F and spray the inside of a 2.5 quart casserole dish with cooking spray.

Step Two: Cut the chicken into chunks and drop them in the dish.

Step Three: Chop up the yellow peppers, the green pepper, and the tomatoes. Drop them in the casserole dish too.

Step Four: Chop up the cilantro. (I use kitchen scissors…that only touch food…to cut it up, just like in this homemade marinara sauce.) Drop it in.

Step Five: Add the can of Cream of Chicken Soup and the tomatillo salsa.

Step Six: Stir up all the ingredients, cover, and place the dish in the oven for 45 minutes.

Step Seven: Sprinkle the cheese onto the casserole (about three handfuls) and put it back in the oven for 15 more minutes, or until the chicken is thoroughly cooked.

Step Eight: Once the chicken is cooked, place a few pieces of sourdough bread in a shallow bowl and cover it with the mexican casserole. Garnish with cilantro.

Serve by itself or add guacamole, sour cream, or more salsa!
