Low Carb Mexican Smoked Chicken Casserole
« on: March 08, 2019, 10:31:50 PM »
This Mexican Smoked Chicken Casserole is a great Low Carb/Keto use of leftover smoked chicken or turkey. I love to smoke chickens and turkeys on my wood pellet smoker grill (MAK 2 Star and/or GMG Davy Crockett). I find it challenging to find/develop new low carb casserole recipes. I enjoy taking simple recipes and adding my personal touches to make them scrumptious!

Ingredients:

1½ lbs of leftover smoked chicken
(2) 10 oz cans of Rotel Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies drained
4 oz can fire roasted diced green chiles
4 oz cream cheese
15 black olives sliced
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp taco seasoning
½ tsp garlic salt
½ tsp black pepper
½ large red onion chopped
1 small red bell pepper chopped
10 fresh baby bella mushrooms sliced
2 cups pepper jack cheese shredded
2 cups Monterey jack cheese shredded

Instructions:

Spray a 9" x 11" foil pan with nonstick spray
Preheat over to 375ºF
Sauté onion, red bell pepper, and mushrooms until al dente - set aside
Season veggies with the garlic salt and black pepper
Dice leftover smoked chicken and season the chicken with chili powder and taco seasoning
Mix the seasoned smoked chicken with the drained Rotel diced tomatoes and chiles
Spread the chicken/diced tomato mixture in the bottom of the foil pan
Dot the mixture with small dollops of cream cheese
Cover the mixture with shredded pepper jack cheese
Top the pepper jack cheese with shredded Monterey jack cheese
Top the casserole with the sliced mushrooms
Bake for 40 minutes at 375ºF
Rest for 5 minutes before serving

Servings: 8

Pete, that looks amazing.   I'm going to try this lightly smoked on my MAK pellet grill.

Looks delicious! How long did it take you to cook?

What kind of smoker do you use? Right now, if you've got any experience, I'll choose one for you. What do you think of these?
