Hello! I am very excited to share this new recipe with you today. A friend on YouTube, Cooking with Kory asked if I wanted to make a crock pot casserole with a few other other YouTubers today and of course I had to say yes. Search #crockpotcasserole on YouTube and see what everoone else has made.
This recipe has the flavors of green chile chicken enchiladas but I used rice instead of tortillas. One of my mom’s signature dishes was green chile enchiladas which was my inspiration for this.
This Slow Cooker Green Chile Chicken and Rice Casserole was sooo good. Another great recipe that the leftovers heat up very well. I hope you enjoy it! Have a great week.
