Chicken Fajita Casserole

Chicken Fajita Casserole created by ovittles

I found a recipe on Recipezaar.com called "Gringo Casserole" which was very good, but I got the idea to make it more like my favorite Mexican dish; chicken fajitas. My whole family loves this dish and it's very easy to make.

    This was really good! Had to make a few changes (only because it's what I had on hand and didn't have time to go to the store). I used precooked fajita chicken I had frozen (already seasoned) and thawed it first. Instead of canned tomatoes with green chilies, I diced a large tomato and added a 1/4 cup of mild salsa to it. I also didnt have Monterey cheese, so I used mild cheddar. I got 2 layers and it was amazing!! Definitely feeds more than 6, I'm excited for leftovers tomorrow for lunch. Will be making this again for sure!

    My family really enjoyed this meal (and this includes a 4 year old and a 1 year old as well!) I did a few things differently. I didn't use chiles because of the young kids, so I used a can of tomatoes with onion and garlic in them instead. I also pre-seasoned my chicken with garlic salt and pepper and used some fajita seasoning as well to add a little more kick. We didn't have montery cheese, so I just used mild cheddar in it's place. Everything was delicious and it got eaten in a day. My daughter who, is a picky eater, asked for more constantly. I will definitely make more! Thank you.

    I made this recipe this past weekend. Excellent dish! I used green peppers, but poblano peppers as well for some added heat. I also added a packet of chicken fajita seasoning to the peppers & half the packet to the chicken mixture. It gave it tons of flavor!

    My family only had one negative thing to save about this recipe. The tortillas became soggy, so they ate around them or picked them out. Next time I am going to chop the peppers instead of slicing them, and leave the tortillas out. I think we would like this better as a filling or as a dip for tortilla chips. In fact, that is exactly what the left overs were used for.
