I found this light Mexican casserole posted on another site. If you use mild salsa, it can be a mild dish for those who don't like heat.

Great recipe - can be very versitile - first time didnt read directions too carefully - just dumped everything together using cream of celery soup - DH loved it like that so the dump method it is. Tasted like mexican risotto. Second time I made it Italian by using Bruchetta and Italian sausage - yummo - third time I used FF Cheddar soup instead of cream of something. Let's just say I needed to print out alot of this recipe for friends.

Love chicken and Mexican, so I enjoyed this very much. I shared it with my neighbor and she liked it too. I will make this again and I think it would be great for a potluck. Thank you.
