One-pot dinners are all the rage, and with good reason! The only thing better than a home cooked meal is having very little cleanup.

We’ve created a quick and simple one-pot recipe perfect for those nights when you don’t want to slave over a stove cooking or spend a lot of time afterward cleaning up. One-Pot Mexican Chicken & Rice Casserole requires few ingredients, but is chock full of south of the border flavor!

The casserole can be served wrapped in a flour tortilla for a dynamite burrito experience. But, our favorite way to enjoy it is straight out of the pan with a side of tortilla chips and salsa. Give it a try and let us know what you think!
