If you like Mexican taste than you must love this cheesy chicken casserole. Also, I love chicken. It’s quickly prepared, easy to combine and leaves so many choices regarding to spices and sauces. Well, here is one cheesy choice.
Monterey Jack cheese makes this meal tangy and delicious. But if you cannot find MJ, try using Gouda (neither smoked, nor aged). The third best cheese option would be Cheddar. So try some of these and let us know how it was.
