My entire family LOVES spicy food! It doesn’t matter what the dish is, we always add something to give it a little kick to it. During the cooler holiday seasons I tend to make a lot of casseroles, they’re easy to make and there are so many ways to add that spicy touch that my family loves so much. Our latest favorite dish is my jalapeño & chicken zucchini casserole, I always make it more often when Thanksgiving comes around. It’s a dish that can easily be made vegetarian by skipping the chicken and adding some sweet corn and peppers.

Casseroles are not only great to make at home, but they’re also perfect to bring along to get-togethers! Fresh biscuits and a huge salad are our typical favorite sides but you can also have the jalapeño & chicken zucchini casserole with mashed potatoes. The possibilities are endless! I alway stock up on different ingredients to switch things up.

    I am such a big baby with anything spicy. I know my husband would love to have this though! It looks so good, I can always make one side with the jalapenos and one without for me.

    Ok, I had to giggle a little because as soon as I saw the first image of the casserole with all the peppers, I was like…uh that’s too hot. Then I saw the Nexium image and I would so need that 🙂 if I ate this dish.
