I have been playing around with this recipe for a few weeks. It is super simple to make and only uses one pot.

The casserole can be done in the oven or in a crockpot, I have instructions for using a crockpot at the end of the recipe.  One pot meals are my personal favorite dinner type recipes, just throw all the ingredients in and you are pretty much done.

You can add as much spice as you like based on your personal tastes. I have a variety of tastes and opinions in my house when it comes to spicy food, anywhere from none to so hot that it makes the top of your head explode. My philosophy is people can add their own heat after serving.

Serve it with tortilla chips for all the taste of chicken enchiladas in a one pot meal.
