This Green Chile Chorizo and Chicken Mexican Casserole has it all
Whether you call it a casserole or a hotdish, this recipe has everything delicious. Cauliflower, green chilies, bell pepper, onion, and garlic, drizzled with olive oil and seasoned with a blend of Mexican spices, then roasted and topped with layers of tender chicken breast, flavorful pork chorizo, and shredded sharp cheddar cheese. This is one of those casseroles that you crave week after week: it's so flavorful and satisfying, and the leftovers just develop the flavors even further.
This recipe was born from a desperate need to go grocery shopping. That is when I am forced to be the most creative. I open the fridge and it is like I am looking at a Chopped basket of ingredients and have to figure out a way to put all of the pieces of the puzzle together. It was a huge hit in our household. It has ended up becoming a heavy hitter in our Taco Tuesday rotation.
You could remix this meal in a variety of ways: serve for breakfast and top with a fried egg or throw leftovers into a scramble, use the casserole as a filling in a tortilla for chicken chorizo keto tacos or an enchilada bake, or enjoy on its own topped with sour cream and green onions! The possibilities are endless.
