I seem to be on a one-dish crusade right now. I love serving a big dish of piping hot food family style and letting the kids just help themselves. This Chicken Tortilla Casserole is just like an Italian lasagna, but instead of using pasta sheets I used tortillas. The method is exactly the same and can be really rustic so don’t worry too much about making it look perfect. As long as it comes out of the oven with the melted cheese on top and the sauce bubbling around the edges of the dish, I’d say it was perfect!

The cheese I used was Cacique® Queso Quesadilla. It’s a fairly mild cheese with great melting qualities so this is the perfect recipe to try it out. Use the whole piece and fill up those layers between the tortillas. If you asked me to make this recipe even easier I’d say of course, you can construct the full recipe a day ahead and store it in the refrigerator. As soon as you return home from work, just preheat the oven and dinner will be ready in about 45 minutes.

Serve this alongside some fresh made guacamole and salsa for an amazing dinner, just don’t expect there to be any leftover!
