This chicken and rice casserole is a fiesta for sure

Print this recipe
This Mexican-inspired casserole combines a host of rich flavors like chiles, beans, and spices. And best of all? This recipe couldn't be easier. Just dump everything into a bowl, mix, and bake. A cheesy topping really seals the deal.
The recipe below capitalizes on instant rice to form the base of the casserole. As the rice is added uncooked, it slowly soaks up all of the flavors, emerging from the oven rich, creamy, and perfectly cooked. Use leftover rotisserie chicken to make this recipe even easier.
