A quick and easy Tex-Mex casserole guaranteed to join your weekly rotation! Mix it up with ground beef or a black bean veggie medley to satisfy all your people.
Gluten Free Chicken Nacho Casserole
Man oh man, this is Tex-Mex comfort food at its easiest and finest. It's also known as the Lazy Person's Enchiladas -- because it's just so simple to make but full of tortilla cheesey goodness!
My mom has always made a Mexican casserole that is a huge hit with anyone and everyone. But it's got those canned cream soups ... you know the ones. I don't love the ingredients ... and they look kinda yucky, too. So this is my cleaner and gluten-free version! I hope you love it as much as my family does.
Any enchilada sauce will do (you can even make your own!), but Siete makes a red one that is my favorite. Feel free to use grain-free chips or tortillas in place of the corn tortilla chips if needed. And like I indicated in the recipe below, you can sub ground beef or steak for the meat ... or go full vegetarian and just use beans and veggies. Or heck, make it half and half! That's a great way to make everyone happy.
Pro tip: Keep these easy ingredients on hand at all times for those nights when you have to make dinner but YOU CAN'T EVEN. Trust me on this.
2 15 oz jars/cans of enchilada sauce (I use Siete Red Enchilada Sauce!)
