How to Make Mexican Chicken Casseroles

A good Mexican chicken casserole needs to have all of the elements that are appreciated in Mexican cuisine. To accomplish this, one needs to keep a few things in mind:

  • There are many different forms of Mexican cuisine (tacos, burritos, enchiladas, etc.), but most casseroles focus on one at a time.
  • The most popular Mexican chicken casseroles are in the form of enchiladas, tacos, or burritos.
  • Other Mexican casseroles simply follow a general theme of Mexican food without choosing a specific form.
  • Mexican dishes with rice are also popular.
  • The spices and seasonings are the most important elements in a Mexican casserole.
  • A good Mexican chicken casserole requires great cheese.
  • Black beans are another popular addition to a casserole.
  • Jalapeno peppers are the most commonly used types of pepper in Mexican food.
  • Habanero peppers are also very popular and are considered hotter than jalapenos.
  • Many people use Monteray Jack cheese or Cheddar cheese, but traditional Mexican white goat cheese with jalapeno peppers is the best choice.
  • Using a can of Rotel (tomatoes and green chilies) is an easy way to add Mexican flavor.
  • Tortilla chips that are at the bottom of a casserole will soften, but ones added on the top will stay crisp.
  • Canned soups are a great way to add liquid and flavor to your casserole.  For a Mexican casserole, a spicy soup is best if you want to make it hotter.
