Green Chili Chicken Enchilada Casserole

Watch out taste buds – your new favorite casserole is in town. This is another one of those “what do I make with what’s in my cupboard” concoctions. But unlike many of those, this one tastes really, really good. We’ve made it four times in the last month, and it’s quickly become a new favorite around here.

It’s inspired by a green chili enchilada, but much easier to put together and serve to large crowds. The recipe below makes one 9×9 pan’s worth of food, but you can easily double it to make a full 9×13. The layering is fun to do, and really doesn’t take long. In the morning, I typically throw a couple chicken breasts in the crockpot with some taco seasoning. They’re ready to shred and mix with the refried beans by dinner time.

Also, although it may not look it, this is actually fairly low calorie. One serving (there are 6 in a 9×9) comes to 290 calories. If you add a nice salad, you’re looking at a 350-400 calorie meal. That’s how we serve it around here!
