"Easy week night dinner - adapted from a recipe taken from Australian Good Taste Magazine. I used mild salsa to make it kid friendly but go as hot and spicy as you like ."

    This is a great Mexican casserole. Very easy to make. I did add jalepeno peppers to add a little spice. This will be one of our favorite dishes. Thank you Katew!

    Excellent and quick dinner recipe -- and very moorish. I have a great non-stick pan, so didn't need to use the oil to cook the chicken. Didn't have kidney beans, so spread a tin of refried beans on the base of the casserole, then added all the remaining ingredients (used a medium-heat salsa) in the order specified. The flavours are beautiful and it is just so doggone easy to make. It's versatile, too. I think it would be great with sauted onion and bell pepper, and chopped olives. Served with dollops of sour cream. Yummo!

    Kate, this was great. A really quick pantry tea made with ingredients we mostly have on hand. I had a bit of a time finding the Mexican beans, but finally thought to try the Mexican food in the supermarket and there they were. I only had a mild salsa on hand, so spiced it up with a few chopped pickled jalapenos and some chopped fresh coriander. I also added in some cumin to the chicken as it cooked. One thing that suprises me is no other reviewer has mentioned you couldn't fit all those ingredients in a 4 cup casserole dish-the chicken was about 2 cups, the salsa another and the corn another. I got out an 8 cup dish and filled it to the top. Just a small point, but one a beginner cook might like to know. And this is just the sort of simple, tasty food anyone could cook and be pleased with the results!
