When the end of summer is on the horizon, I switch from laid-back-beach-going mom to organized-get-things-done mom. The fall brings a busier schedule for our family and, as the homemaker, it’s my job to reset and refocus to ensure everyone settles into the new routine comfortably.
With school starting, bedtimes will be earlier, which means I’ve also got to get food on the table sooner. That’s when my organized side kicks in!
A little effort goes a long way, and some simple meal-time planning really takes the stress out of dinnertime. I like to make a shopping list for everything I need the following week, filling our family’s menu in advance with recipes that are easy to prepare.
This Mexican Chicken and Rice Skillet Casserole comes together in right around 30 minutes, making it a favorite go-to on busy weeknights. We adore tacos with all the fixings, and this skillet dish puts a fun twist on our traditional taco night. It’s like a loaded chicken taco made into a casserole! One-pan recipes make this momma happy! The last thing I want to be doing on a busy weeknight is a sink full of dishes.
Any leftovers, my husband can take to work. This saves money and keeps us from falling into the sandwich rut. Bonus!
If you add this or another easy Mexican casserole recipe to your rotation, I’m sure it will quickly become one of your family’s favorites!
