Okay, so “My Turn Monday” was short-lived, in a sense – I’m participating in a Bible study that meets from 7-9 on Monday nights for 7 weeks. Last week I cooked on Sunday night and snagged leftovers on Monday before I headed back out to church, and tonight my husband cooked (but I did buy ingredients to cook at some point this week, I promise!). Last week, I made a Mexican Chicken Casserole with fresh, homemade salsa. I loved it!! It was so much work to make – we went to the grocery store around dinnertime, the cooking was a combined effort between me and my husband, we fed E his dinner, and finally sat down to enjoy our meal around 9 PM, long after E was asleep! I didn’t double the recipe for the casserole or the salsa because that would have required a ton of extra chopping/prepwork, but as it was, the leftovers lasted for several more lunches and dinners for two. I did skip some of the ingredients, since there were so many – I left out the jalapeños and the corn. The only “heat” I added was chili powder. We’re not big on really spicy foods at my house, although I’m sure it would have been good in this dish!

Finally prepped to cook!
This recipe is definitely a keeper! Mexican is one of my favorites! 🙂
