Easy Keto Chicken Fajita Casserole – Notes

I highly recommend you to use canned diced tomatoes and green chilies by Rotel for this recipe.
For that classic tex-mex flavor, Taco Seasoning is a must.
You can use Mexican cheese blend as well but I used Monterey Jack and Cheddar cheese.
I am using chicken breasts, then cut into thin strips (sliced lengthwise), or you can dice the chicken breasts into bite-sized chunks to make this keto creamy chicken fajita casserole. May also use leftover rotisserie chicken/turkey.

Can I Make This Ahead Of Time?

Absolutely! Just assemble the dish, cover it, and until ready to bake, place it in the refrigerator. For up to 1-2 days, you can store this. Follow the instructions as given when ready and bake. Keep a close eye on the cheese as it may take additional 5-10 minutes.

Can I Store This?

If you have any leftover. Pack them in an airtight container and for up to 3-4 days, store in the fridge. Microwave for a few minutes or until it gets warmed through when ready to eat.

Can I Freeze This?

A great meal prep dish, portion them, pack in containers(airtight) and for up to THREE months, freeze. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating when ready to eat.
