    Souper Easy Tex-Mex!

    I love casseroles like this one. It's what I call a fly by the seat of your pants casserole. I swapped the Picante sauce for a can of Ro-Tel. I drained the Ro-Tel into a measuring cup & did the same with a can of pinto beans, added a little h2o & seasonings, mixed it all together, topped it with a huge boneless skinless chicken breast cut into chunks and popped it in the oven. I tasted it before I added the cheese. I love adding the pintos with jalapeños. I'm popping a cookie sheet of cut up corn tortillas in the oven for homemade chips to go with the casserole tonight.

    Southwestern Chicken & Rice Casserole

    This casserole gives a great basic Mexican-like taste and is very easy. I used cream of mushroom soup on accident and it turned out fine. I also suggest increasing the cheese to as much as 2 cups depending on taste. Next time I may add corn chips or even corn flakes to the mix near the end. The only slight question here is the chicken breasts - they can come out a little dry or bland so you may want to marinate them first or really spice them up.
