Chicken Enchilada Casserole

On busy weeknights I am a huge fan of one pot meals. The idea is you can take all the ingredients and using one pot create a delicious, nutritious meal for yourself and your family.

The Chicken Enchilada Casserole can be done either in the oven or in a crockpot. I have added instructions for using a crockpot at the end of the recipe.

You can add as much spice as you like based on your personal preferences. I have a variety of tastes and opinions in my house when it comes to spicy food, anywhere from none to so hot that it makes the top of your head explode. My philosophy is people can add their own heat after serving.

Serve it with tortilla chips for all the taste of chicken enchiladas in a one pot meal.
