Another classic from MeShell’s diner. This recipe for chicken tortilla casserole is full of flavour, crunch and cheese! What more could you want?! This vanlife recipe does require an oven, although we would love to see some of you try it in your Omnia! This recipe uses many ingredients which may already be in your van pantry. The majority of them such as chicken soup and tortillas have a long shelf life too meaning you can stock up on them before your adventures for this recipe.

This chicken tortilla casserole is a great mexican dish with a twist, meaning the whole family will love it. It is also a great sharing dish for mexican nights with fellow vanlife friends.

    Loved this recipe! We had to make some adaptations due to being in Europe and not having access to some ingredients. It worked well with chicken stock & extra sour cream instead of soup! It was also lovely with rice.
    Thank you for sharing this amazing dinner 😍
