Total Social // Favorite Family Recipe

There are a few of recipes that my husband asks for over and over. No matter how many new recipes I may try from Pinterest or from my many cookbooks, he will always prefer those old faithfuls. They're tried and true, passed down from my mother, the kind of recipe that I can pull out and make in a jiff when we want some delicious comfort food.

Over the next few weeks, I'll be sharing some of them! First up, Chicken Enchilada Casserole. It's a favorite of anyone I make it for, so I'm excited to share it with y'all today! 

I've heard this called Mexican lasagna, Layered Mexican Casserole, etc, but in our family, it's Chicken Enchilada Casserole, and it's amazingly delicious. My mouth waters looking at this food. Mexican food is always a go-to for us, so if you like Mexican, you'll love this. It's got the perfect blend of seasonings; and with the sour cream and salsa verde baked in, it still tastes light and fresh. 

A few tips: I use a rotisserie chicken to make it easier. I hate dealing with raw chicken, so I'm always looking for ways to cut corners! I also make my own taco seasoning usually--less preservatives and sodium than what you get in the store-bought package. I use this recipe. We also use Greek yogurt to cut some calories (there is A LOT of cheese in this, and I want to enjoy it!)

We love to top with a little extra sour cream or salsa verde and add some Mexican rice on the side! This is a great recipe to make on a Sunday and enjoy throughout the week--it makes great leftovers!

Linking up with the fabulous Helene and Sarah for #FavTotalSocial today!
