Review This Recipe
Good Basic Recipie...Plan to add a few items
My kids liked this alot. I added mushrooms (I add to almost everything since my kids love them) garlic, mexi corn and a bit of onion. Other than that it was good.
This is a quick and easy meal that pleases everyone. I opted to use Kuner's Black Beans seasoned with cumin and chili spices. It adds a nice bit of flavor. I also season my chicken with cumin and chili spices and garlic while I grill them. Just to give it a little more zing. For the wimpy folk like me you can always serve with a side of sour cream!
cheesy chicken black bean casserole
I massively adapted this recipe for a church group. I started with a gallon can of cheese (restaurant style for nachos), and increased all other ingredients accordingly. I cooked it in an 18-quart roaster pan. After it was all in the roaster, we just started adding ingredients..... Everyone loved it. With leftovers, wrap in tortillas!~
Oh so good!
This dish is super easy to make and tastes excellent! I listened to the other reviewers and substituted some things and it turned out fabulous. For the chicken I used the Ortega shredded Chicken and instead of regular corn chips I used the Guacamole Doritos. Everyone loved it!
Great for Groups
I made this for the first time, but substituted chopped jalapeno's for the green chile's and instead of crushed corn chips, used crushed Guacamole chips. A big hit with everyone - especially if you like spicier dishes. I will certainly be making this one again! Thank you!
Ohhhh so YUMMY!
This was a GREAT casserole!
I did modify the recipe a bit--I could not find Welsh Rarebit at my grocery store, so I used Campbell's canned Cheddar cheese sauce and it was PERFECT!
I also used campanelle noodles instead of macaroni for fun. Also crushed potato chips were fine instead of crushed tortilla chips.
Another helpful hint: Ortega makes a seasoned shredded chicken mix (for tacos) that you can find in your grocer's meat section---it's absolutely delicious in this casserole!
