Easy Chicken Tortilla Casserole: Mile high tortilla stack filled with seasoned  chicken and tons of melty cheese. Mix up Mexican night in your house this week! Just like our chicken noodle, and chicken bacon ranch casseroles this dish is easy to make and family-friendly. 

Easy Chicken Tortilla Casserole


We cook Mexican food at least once a week. I love tacos, quesadillas,and tostadas as much as anyone. However, week after week they can get a little boring.

This Easy Chicken Tortilla Casserole is the perfect way to mix up Mexican night. It’s full of all your favorite flavors and oh so cheesy. I grabbed pre cooked/seasoned chicken strips at the store. However, feel free to use leftover chicken. I would just season it with some taco seasoning.

It’s super customizable so feel free to use steak, pork, or even no meat at all in your Easy Chicken Tortilla Casserole, yum!


Serve with: 

Refried Black Beans
