There are just a few simple ingredients in this casserole and it comes together really easily. We love to grill on the weekends. If we are grilling chicken, we will throw a few extra pieces on and have them on hand for easy dinners throughout the week.
We made some grilled chicken thighs and added 4 extra chicken thighs that we just seasoned with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. They were perfect for this Mexican casserole.

My Epic Creamy Chicken Enchiladas are one of my all time favorite meals but one of my pick eaters does not like enchiladas. I won him over with the pasta version and the whole family raved over them. If you are looking for al lighter version, these Zucchini Enchilada Roll Ups are a must-try.
I could literally eat Mexican food every day and never get tired of it and these Mexican lasagna roll ups are definitely going into the regular dinner rotation.
