Mexican Chicken Casserole Recipe

My family loves Mexican food! Enchiladas, tacos, burritos….we love it all! I have tried the following recipe several different ways until I finally hit on the ingredients that we like the best. I love how easy it is to throw this together and toss it in the oven. I’ve even been buying the little bags of Tyson pre-cooked, pre-diced chicken breasts because I’m so short on time these days. A little pricey but still cheaper than eating out so that makes them worth it to me.

Mexican Chicken Casserole



  • 2 cups cooked, chopped chicken
  • 1 can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 can cheddar cheese soup
  • 1 can Rotel
  • 1 bag frozen corn, cooked
  • 1 pkg flour tortillas
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese


1. Tear 3 tortillas into strips or pieces and put in bottom of baking dish.
2. Combine 3 cans of soup and Rotel in large bowl; stir.
3. Add cooked corn to mixture.

4. Add chopped chicken to mixture.
5. Stir mixture until well combined.
6. Pour into baking dish on top of tortillas.
7. Top with 2 cups shredded cheese.
8. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.


If you don’t like Rotel you can always substitute regular diced tomatoes instead. When I used diced tomatoes instead of Rotel I added a packet of taco seasoning to give it more flavor. Also, the cheddar cheese soup is totally optional. My family likes this dish really cheesy but I’ve also made it without the cheddar cheese soup and it was just as good.

  • This looks fantastic. Yum.

  • Looks great! Adding Doritos sounds tasty, too.

    I totally agree with buying foods that are pre-prepped if you don’t have time to do it yourself. For a long time I resisted doing that, wanting to make/do everything myself, but then I realized that we were spending way more on fast food on those nights that I didn’t have time to cook or couldn’t cook because of a fussy baby.

  • I make this same casserole EXCEPT, I use either nacho or taco flavored Doritos. My preference is the taco flavored Doritos. The chips make it a little more firm that the tortillas do.

  • Behold the power of cheese…
