Like a south-of-the-border take on lasagna, this Salsa Verde Chicken Casserole recipe layers all the classic Tex-Mex flavors you love in one quick and easy dish. I'm sure that if you give it a try, it'll become the newest addition to your weeknight dinner rotation. That's because this hearty casserole is a snap to assemble. In fact, it comes together in just 30 minutes. Convenient ingredients like rotisserie chicken, corn tortillas, salsa verde and sour cream layer up with fresh tomatoes, cilantro and shredded Monterey Jack cheese, making this speedy dish is the ultimate family-friendly dinner. (Kind of like the rest of our favorite 30-minute casseroles!)
To top it off, the recipe is easy to tweak to your family's tastes: kick up the spice level by adding sliced jalapenos, or use flour tortillas if that's what you've got on hand. Cooked corn and fresh cilantro are easy adds, too. You can even save leftovers for breakfast—try it with a fried egg on top and you'll forget all about your typical morning toast.
