My boys love to eat. Seriously! They are sometimes like Hobbits with their breakfast, 2nd breakfast (aka morning snack), etc. When they hit a growth spurt, I find that they are trying to raid the kitchen almost hourly.
When it comes time to dinner, I like to find recipes that are easy to make and fill up their bellies. Mexican themed dinners tend to do just that. While tacos are a mainstay for easy Mexican, I like to change things up now and then. These Chicken Taco Casseroles (shown as individual servings) are perfect for this.
If you like to plan ahead, making a large batch of shredded or cubed chicken will make the process of making the Individual Chicken Taco Casseroles easy and quick.
Roasting the corn first will help with a depth of flavor.
Gather the ingredients into individual containers if you will be assembling multiple casseroles.
There are lots of options for individual casseroles for cooking and serving. This set of oval ceramic baking dishes from Libby is quite versatile.
What I like about the individual serving size is that I can make one per child and then have them fill up on other things like salsa & chips or salad. Beans are another favorite side dish for Mexican inspired dinners in our house. We’ve enjoyed experimenting with refried beans mixed with plain black beans as well as making homemade Mexican Baked Beans.
With each person having an individual container for the main dish there can be no posturing over who should have seconds.
Alternatively, you could multiply everything by 8 or 10 and make the dish lasagna style in a casserole dish. That would also make it a great potluck dish to pass.
Corn, chicken, salsa, and cheese meld together to create a taste sensation in your mouth.
