Tips, Tricks, and Variations
Can you make this as a chicken crockpot casserole?
Yes! I would suggest getting the street taco size tortillas (4 inches) and overlapping them within a layer to create more surface area. Then, simply follow the directions above but reserve about a cup of cheese until the end. Cook on low for 2-3 hours and then add the cheese and cook for approximately 20 minutes or until the cheese is hot and bubbly.
Do I have to make this chicken casserole recipe in a skillet?
No. You can cook this recipe in any old pan. We love the natural seasoning that comes from cooking chicken tortilla casserole in a skillet, but it is not a requirement.
What can I serve with this easy chicken casserole recipe?
As a fun appetizer, I like to pair this meal up with our Bacon, Cheese and Jalapeno Corn dip and some tortilla chips. It is a fun, easy, and very unique recipe and pairs nicely with the spices in this cheesy chicken tortilla pie.
