Chicken noodle casseroles are a favorite of ours. These are quick and easy to prepare, and they can also be prepared ahead of time so you have a quick meal on the week. I was craving Mexican food so I made a Chicken Fajita Noodle Casserole. The chicken Fajitas are my favorite Mexican food, so I was eager to see how this casserole turned out. It turned out to be delicious! I mean seriously delicious! Bell peppers, onions and chicken, as well as fajita seasoning and cream of chicken soup. ?!?!? How can it be so bad?!
