Southwest Chicken Casserole

This Southwest Chicken Casserole is the easiest recipe ever and it's SO delicious! It will quickly become a family favorite -- especially one that the kids love!

I told you all that during my last freezer cooking session, I got creative (er, lazy) with our usual Southwest Roll-Ups recipe and turned it into a lasagna-like casserole. I wasn’t sure how we would like it, but I was curious to see!

Well, we pulled it out of the freezer and ate it recently and the verdict is in: it was a HUGE success! The whole family loved it!

In fact, we loved it better than the regular roll-ups recipe — which is saying a lot since those have been a family favorite for a long time.

There are a few drawbacks to making the recipe in a casserole dish:

  • You don’t have the individual burrito servings like you would usually have with the roll-ups recipe. So this can no longer be used for a quick snack or individual meal.
  • You have to freeze in a casserole dish and it takes a LOT longer to thaw (I pulled it out the day before and let it thaw in the fridge for 24 hours).

But there are some great pros, too:

  • It’s so much quicker to make. Which you know I’m all about! 😉
  • It seems a little fancier than the individual roll-ups did. I think it’d be yummy served topped with chopped lettuce, sour cream, salsa, guacamole, and black olives.
  • It’s just plain so, so good!

Here’s how I tweaked the recipe:
