So folks, if you love chicken fajita and want to take it one step further – then please read on as I will explain to you on how to make this.  Here how to cook a chicken fajita casserole.

What you need:

  • Corn Tortilla
  • Chicken breast chunks
  • Cheese
  • Salsa
  • (optional) Beans
  • (optional) Chili sauce
  • (optional) Sour Cream

How to make it:

  • Start to put the chicken breast chunks in the pan to heat up and to start cooking.
  • While the chicken is in the pan, laid the base layer with the corn tortilla in the cooking/casserole pot. Feel free to sprinkle some cheese here.
  • Once you are satisfied that the chicken breast chunks are cooked, transfer it to the cooking pot and spread it so it fills all available space.
  • Now add the sauce, I chose chili sauce but you can use whatever you want.
  • Give the sauce and chicken a stir, making sure the sauce covers all chicken chunks.
  • Feel free to add any extra ingredients and personalize it to how you want.
  • Once you are happy and got it just right, it time to close it by putting on the top layer.
  • You do this by adding another layer of corn tortilla delicately on top of the main area (where the ingredients are).
  • Feel free to sprinkle more cheese or salsa on top of the top corn tortilla.
  • Pop it in the oven for 25 minutes with the cooking pot lid on.
  • Keep checking to avoid burning and too see the corn tortilla crisping up.
  • Once you are happy, take it out and let it cool down.
  • Cut a slice or take a serving spoon and dish on a plate.
  • Serve with sour cream or extra salsa.
  • Bon appetite.
