Easy Mexican Casserole with Chicken

Mexican food is one of my favorite cuisine.

I got Inspired to make this recipe by “All Time Family Favorites Cassroles and One Dish Meals” by Publications International limited. And what makes this recipe easy is that my chicken was already completely cooked in the crock pot ahead of times and all I had to do is put the ingredients together in a baking dish, and voila, just bake it. I have made this a few times and decided to share this recipe.
