CHEESY Chicken Tomatillo Casserole recipe! This easy dinner Mexican casserole uses 1 pound of tomatillos to make a creamy sauce that is layered with tortilla chips, chicken, black beans and cheddar cheese! I love to make this simple dish when my garden tomatillo plants give me too much and I’m left asking asking “What to do!”.
I’m back with another tomatillo recipe! With another 20 pounds of tomatillos picked from the garden I’m trying to think more outside the salsa verde box and wondering what to do with them! For dinner I wanted to make a easy casserole that included chicken breasts, tomatillos, black beans and cheese so this Cheesy Chicken Tomatillo Casserole was born!
If you love Mexican casseroles I think you’re going to like this dish! The tomatillos are thrown into the food processor with a onion, green pepper, jalapeno pepper, cilantro and spices to make a creamy simple sauce. By the way check out my tip on how to store fresh cilantro!
