Hatch Green Chile Chicken Casserole
Hatch Green Chile Chicken Casserole is one of those dinners that is great to put together on a cold rainy day. There are so many choices to make when making this too.
If you prefer hotter chiles then use all hot. You can make the Spanish rice from scratch like our Homestyle Spanish Rice or do what I did and buy a can of Spanish rice seasoning and make it that way.
There are also loads of instant rice options out there as well. I prefer to keep my cheeses separated, but feel free to combine them and sprinkle where you feel there needs to be a layer of molten cheese.
The Hatch Green Chile variety comes from the Hatch Valley region of New Mexico.
I love this recipe because it really will feed 8-12 depending on who you are feeding. For my family of 4 (2 adults and a 5 and 6-year-old), this recipe will make 4 meals.
I like to divide the recipe up into 2 square dishes and freeze one for a later meal after baking. We serve this up usually with slices of avocado and a squeeze of lime, sometimes an extra dollop of sour cream!
