Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Casserole Recipe

I love Mexican food. Well, mostly I really love margaritas but I also enjoy enchiladas. Margaritas and enchiladas are a pretty great Friday night in my house.

So any chance I get to serve a Mexican dish for dinner, I jump on it in a hurry. The kids will eat anything with cheese and they love rice so this casserole is perfect for them.

Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Casserole Recipe

This casserole turned out so delicious. It’s like a real enchilada without the extra carbs of the tortillas, which made Matt happy since he’s counting carbs lately.

I put the casserole together in the morning and refrigerated it so all I had to do when I got home was to add the cooked rice and pop it in the oven.
