I am so delighted to share with you a recipe for an easy-to-make, delicious dinner – Chicken Fiesta Casserole (formerly called Fiesta Chicken Potatoes). It is super easy to throw together and your family will love it. The dish is a satisfying blend of cheesy chicken and chiles mixed with Simply Potatoes Southwest Style Hash Browns.
Simply Potatoes are fresh, never frozen. You can pick up a bag (or two!) in the refrigerated dairy section of your local grocery store. What I love about them is that I don’t have to thaw them and I don’t have any potato peels to clean up.
To make Chicken Fiesta Casserole, get a large bowl and place 16 ounces of pre-cooked fajita chicken meat that has been cubed in the bottom. (To keep meal preparation simple, just pick up a package of the pre-cooked, seasoned meat at the store.)
Add a package of Simply Potatoes Southwest Style Hash Browns, 12 ounces of cream of chicken soup, a cup of sour cream, and a can of diced chiles that has been drained. Stir well and spoon into your favorite casserole dish.
Bake for 40 minutes and then top with some crushed tortilla strips. (I buy a bag of strips in the salad section at the store and just break them up in the bag before opening.) Bake for another 10 minutes and voilà – dinner is ready.
