This is the meal I’ve been bringing to all of our friends that have had babies lately. My family loves it and it’s super easy to make. It’s easy enough to tailor to any particular family’s taste (spicy, mild, more veggies, less chicken etc.) and the flavor is just awesome.
I pack it in a basket with tortillas, guac, salsa and sour cream and deliver it with a big bowl of Mexican rice and some homemade cookies. Everyone always asks for the recipe and is shocked how easy it is.
If you’re making it for yourself, you can assemble and bake it ahead of time and just reheat when you’re ready to serve OR you can assemble it anytime and bake just before serving. Either is delicious.
This one is part of our regular rotation. It’s one of the few meals that makes everyone happy!
These have a little kick to them, but not too much. If your kids won’t tolerate ANY spice, you might skip the Rotel (which contains a little jalapeno) and just do diced tomatoes. Also, to make it easier, I have the butcher chop the chicken into strips for me. You’d be surprised how willing he is to help out a mom shopping with three kids!
