Easy Tortilla Casserole
We spiced up a boring casserole with Mexican flavors and still kept it simple enough for any night of the week.
Why This Recipe Works
When developing this Easy Tortilla Casserole recipe, we wanted to simplify the classic recipe, turning the dish into a quick, weeknight meal. Pureeing raw tomato, onion, garlic, and smoky chipotles in the blender yields a quick and traditional sauce. Simmering the sauce helps blend its flavors. Using leftover or rotisserie chicken for the filling saves time and effort without sacrificing flavor. Cooking the tortilla casserole in a hot oven melts the cheese quickly and prevents the casserole from drying out.
