A casserole refers to food cooked and served in a casserole - a large, deep dish used both in the oven and as a serving vessel. This Casserole recipe has a Mexican twist to it with ingredients like kidney beans and salsa. Serve the garnish in bowls so guests can top their portions with diced tomatoes, sour cream and a sprinkle of cilantro.
Grease a 13x9-inch baking dish, then scatter the crushed tortilla chips evenly on the bottom.
Combine the chicken, beans, corn, tomato sauce, salsa, onion, bell pepper, cilantro, garlic, salt and pepper in a bowl. Place half the mixture evenly in the baking dish. Combine the cheese, then sprinkle half over the mixture.
3. Cover with the remaining half of the chicken-and-bean mixture and sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top.
4. Bake for 30 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving. Serve the garnishes in bowls, so guests can top their portions with diced tomatoes, sour cream and a sprinkle of cilantro.
