Spicy Tex Mex Rice And Chicken Casserole

This casserole is my alternative to a noodle casserole, as my better half is not a big noodle fan. I also get to use my homemade HOT SALSA..this is scrumptious!

How to Make Spicy Tex Mex Rice And Chicken Casserole


  • 1Gather your ingredients
  • 2Place the rice in the water and bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 20 minutes.
  • 3Cook the chicken breast is saucepan; covering them with water. Bring to boil and cook for 20 minutes; or till done.
  • 4When chicken is done; remove from water, when cool enough, shred and add the seasoning, this is not a must, I like the added spice.
  • 5Preheat oven to 350 degree.

    Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with cooking spray.
  • 6In a medium bowl; combine the cheeses
  • 7In a medium bowl; mix together soup, sour cream, onion, and salsa.
  • 8Layer 1/2 of the rice, 1/2 of the chicken, 1/2 of the soup and salsa mixture, and 1/2 of the cheese mixture in prepared dish.

    Repeat layers, ending with cheese.
  • 9Bake in preheated oven for about 40 to 45 minutes, or until bubbly.
  • 10Let rest 20 to 30 minutes before serving, to let set up.

    I serve this with a dollop of sour cream and hot pepper flakes atop for more added heat; and garlic bread. Or perhaps a salad..This is a very versatile and tasty casserole!

    This freezes well also. I put it on a paper plate and vacuum sealed it.
