Karen’s Killer Fixin’s: Mexican Chicken Casserole

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s!  Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me.  I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers here.

So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy.  It might be a main course recipe.  A cookie or baked item.  Candy.  Salads.  Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is MEXICAN CHICKEN CASSEROLE.

This filling, delicious casserole was shared with me by a very dear friend. Thanks, Jan!! There’s nothing like chicken, chilis and oodles of melted cheese to make your family and friends happy!

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s.  Happy eating!
