If you love Mexican cuisine, this Keto Mexican Chipotle Chicken Casserole is going to be your favorite. It’s tasty, cheesy and spicy. If you don’t like it too hot, feel free to remove the chili.

This is one of my favorite keto casserole recipes that will be a great dinner meal and you can keep the leftover for lunch. You can serve this with some lettuce or a low carb salad if you want to add more greens into your diet. To enhance the flavor, feel free to throw on top some fresh cilantro to garnish.

If you’re in the mood for a hearty, keto-friendly dish, I highly recommend my low carb chicken broccoli casserole. It’s a perfect blend of wholesome broccoli and tender chicken, topped with delicious cheese – a personal go-to in my keto kitchen.
