Spicy Tomato Chicken Casserole

Rated as 4 out of 5 Stars

"This is a quick and easy dish. Conventional oven or microwave baking can be used. Tastes sooooooo good, it'll make your tongue slap your brains out! 'Rotel' is the name for the mixture of diced tomatoes with green chile peppers. It is sold in most grocery stores in the canned tomato or Mexican foods section."

Followed the recipe, nothing is really "wrong" with the recipe, I just didn't care for the flavor. Will not make again.
