*I was provided with a casserole kit and the prizes for the giveaway.
Last month I tried my hand at my first casserole as part of the Country Crock Casserole club. The broccoli cheddar mac casserole was such a hit that I was pretty excited to see what recipe I’d be working with this month. The recipe card included in my kit featured a Mexican Beef & Corn Casserole. While I’m sure the recipe is fantastic as it is, I was in the mood for chicken.
In my freezer I found some pre-cooked chicken chunks that are perfect for a recipe like this. This is also a great recipe for sneaking in extra veggies and beans the kids might otherwise not eat. We used sweet corn and black beans, a tasty combo for this Mexican inspired casserole.
I tossed in some salsa, sour cream and some Velveeta cheese cubes for an extra creamy texture. A couple tablespoons of Country Crock spread brings it all together. After a quick mix, this casserole is ready to go in a dish and into the oven.
After 30 minutes in the oven it comes out piping hot and ready for dinner. While it’s not a hearty meal by itself, you can use this casserole as a “hot dip” for corn chips or even fill up some tortillas for a delicious burrito.
