I have several quick & easy recipes using my Crock-Pot Tex-Mex Chicken and here is another one.  This Tex-Mex Casserole is easy to toss together if you are in a hurry and it is a great last minute recipe idea.  I make a crock-pot full of my Tex-Mex Chicken a lot of weeks. It makes quick & easy nachos, tacos, enchiladastortilla soupquesadillas, burritos, a taco ring, taco salad, and this Tex-Mex Casserole.

This casserole is made using two cans Pillsbury Crescent Rolls.  Who does not love Pillsbury Crescent Rolls?  You can also use Pillsbury Crescent Roll SHEETS.  I have several recipes where I use crescent rolls, and it is always a hit.  In fact, my family (teens) enjoy them so much we could have easily made the commercial Pillsbury has were the boys are fighting over them.  We often have this problem in my home.  I have found if I wrap up a meal in crescent rolls, my family thinks I am the best cook in the world.

If you want your family to think you are the best cook in the world, try this recipe.  I tried to find a similar recipe on Pillsbury, but this was the closest I found.  It is made with ground beef.

    Ingredients

    • 2 cans Pillsbury Crescent Rolls - 8 Dinner Rolls OR 2 cans of Pillsbury Crescent Sheets
    • 3 cups of Crock-Pot Tex-Mex Chicken - You could also bake 3 large or 4 medium chicken breast seasoned with a Mexican seasoning and then cut into bite size pieces.

    • Fajita Magic. My Walmart carries it.

    Instructions

    1. Add a can of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls to the bottom of a 9 x 13 baking dish that has been lightly sprayed with a cooking spray.
    2. I add three cups of shredded Crock-Pot Tex-Mex chicken.

    Janine,

    Thank you! It is really delicious! I normally have plenty of Crock-Pot Tex-Mex chicken on hand because it is so easy to whip up Mexican food like this Casserole.
    I hope you stay warm. I am watching the Today show right now. They are talking about all the bad weather in New York. STAY WARM!!
