Chicken Fajita Casserole

Beth Pierce


This easy fantastic Chicken Fajita Casserole combines delectable chicken breasts seasoned perfectly with fajita spices, red and orange bell pepper, brown rice and salsa style tomatoes. It is topped with plenty of cheddar jack and a dollop of sour cream and salsa. I love to serve it with Doritos Taco Salad and Best Cornbread Recipe.
