Tips and Tricks For Stress-Free Casserole Cooking
Add a crunch: For an element of crunch and texture, add a handful of crushed tortilla chips on top before baking.
Not a fan of black beans? Swap them out for pinto beans, or leave them out altogether and spread a layer of refried beans on top of the chicken mixture in the pan.
Swap out the cheese: I love the ease of the premixed Mexican blend, but feel free to experiment with any of your favorite cheeses to make it your own.
Amp up the heat with some diced jalapenos in place of the green chiles.
Freeze some for later: Whether you’re cooking for a crowd or just for one this dish is still for you. Casserole are extremely easy to freeze.
While still fresh, cut the casserole into portion sizes, wrap in freezer paper and place into a ziptop bag. Repeat as many time as servings you have to save and use within 4 months.
