"Today you are really going to warm up because we are making Buffalo chicken casserole," says Rach. It's like Buffalo chicken dip, which everyone loves, but for dinner! The dish couldn't be easier or quicker to make, in part because she uses store-bought rotisserie chicken. Serve it with sliced green onions, chopped cilantro and pickled jalapenos for topping and tortilla chips for dipping and watch it disappear!
