Low Carb Mexican Smoked Chicken Casserole

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!
