Now that fall is approaching and the weather is starting to cool down, we are all about eating al fresca. Whether it’s tailgating or hosting a backyard party, you can be sure that my favorite part of a get together is the food! Am I right? I’ve got a quick and easy recipe for you that’s perfect for tailgating season. Check out this Cheesy Chicken Enchilada Casserole!
This casserole is seriously so so good y’all. It’s cheesy and full of flavor, plus it’s super easy to throw together. Your family and guests will be sure to compliment you in between cheesy bites.
Let’s get down to business and make some casserole, shall we? Head to your local Walmart and pick up the following ingredients:
- Kraft Natural Shreds (16oz) Mexican Style
- Kraft Natural Chunk (8oz) Chipotle
- corn tortillas
- 1 can red enchilada sauce
- shredded chicken
- salt, pepper
- 3 stalks green onion diced
- 1 avocado chopped
Preheat your oven to 375*, open the can of enchilada sauce, tear about 15-20 corn tortillas in 1/4s, and grab a casserole dish. To make this recipe super simple, I usually use leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken and shred it with a fork and toss it in salsa. Cube about 1/4-1/3 of the Kraft Natural Chunk (8oz) Chipotle cheese and set aside. In the casserole dish, pour a thin layer of enchilada sauce and layer the torn tortillas, chicken, and cubed cheese. I usually go 2 layers up, but your can go 3 if you have enough room in your dish.
To top the casserole, put another layer of torn tortillas and the rest of the enchilada sauce.
Now it’s time to cheese it up! Sprinkle 1-2 cups of Kraft Natural Shreds (16oz) Mexican Style cheese over the top. I love Kraft Natural Shreds because it saves me time… no shredding by hand necessary!
Next, sprinkle the diced green onion over the cheese and put in the over for 20 minutes.
After your casserole is baked and the cheese is all melty, pull it out of the oven and let cool for 5 minutes. Top with chopped avocado.
Look at that cheesy goodness. Now it’s ready to share with family and friends at your next tailgate party!
Don’t forget the chips!
