Rotel Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti Casserole is Comforting and delicious!
A cheesy chicken casserole with the great taste of spicy Rotel tomatoes right in the sauce.
Anytime is the perfect time for comfort food, and nothing is better than this cheesy casserole!
Not only is this meal full of cheesy comfort, it’s also got the great taste of diced tomatoes with chilis. This is a real family-pleasing meal because it satisfies the adults as well as the kiddos.
SOME LIKE IT SPICY
The standard Rotel spaghetti recipe is pretty popular.
You can alter the spiciness of this recipe by substituting a hotter variety of these canned tomatoes. But if your store doesn’t carry the hotter variety or you’d rather by the generic store brand of diced tomatoes with green chilis, you can spice it up yourself!
What I do is add some chopped canned jalapeño. I usually use about one tablespoon because it adds enough zip for me, but if you prefer it hotter add more–even the whole can if you’re really into spicy!
I prefer to pop this in a casserole dish, top with some crushed tortilla chips and bake it for about 30 minutes. But this is perfectly fine and fully cooked right from the skillet.
This chicken spaghetti is nothing if not versatile! So if you want it fast, it’s a skillet dinner, but if you want it with a little baked crunch on top do it as a casserole!
