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.
I love casseroles for dinner. Some of our favorites are bacon cheeseburger casserole, stuffed pepper casserole, and of course this chicken tortilla one as well. We also 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!

This looks so yummy! Could you use corn tortillas in place of flour? I’m not a fan of the flour ones..

I have not tried that so I can’t say for sure. Seems like it would be fine though! Please let us know how it turns out.
