Dinner Tonight: Chicken Fajita Casserole

This dinner was just obvious.  Seriously...why did it take me so long to think of it?  We just love the already cooked, grilled fajita chicken you buy at the grocery store.  I've used it before in several recipes like this one for Chicken Fajita Tostadas.  So, why not just make a quick casserole using it?  Duh!  Simple idea turned into a great dinner with big flavor.  Easy!
Shopping List
2 bags fajita chicken meat (like this kind)
1 onion, chopped
1 bell pepper (any color), chopped
1 can Rotel
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 can chopped green chiles
1 cup Pepper Jack cheese, shredded (use Monterey Jack for less spicy)
2 cups Tortilla Chips, lightly crushed

Preheat oven to 425 degrees.

In an oven-safe skillet (if you don't have one, just make it in a regular skillet and then transfer it to an 8x8 inch glass baking dish before baking) saute your chicken, onions and bell peppers about 5 to 7 minutes (your chicken is already cooked, so you're just heating through the veggies).  Stir in the Rotel, chili powder, chiles and cheese.  Top with tortilla chips and bake about 15 minutes until the casserole is bubbly.

That's it!  Isn't that simple?!  And it's really good as well.  Simple meals for a hectic holiday season.  That's what the mama needs over at her house.  Happy dinner!

Looks so yummy and simple, which are two of my favorite things! I must try!
Question - how do I know if a skillet is oven safe?

When you buy your cookware, each piece specifies if it's oven safe. You just need to make sure the handle doesn't have any rubber or plastic on it. When in doubt, transfer to a baking dish!
