Southwestern OPA Ranch Casserole – a delicious casserole with chicken, mushrooms and egg noodles tossed in a flavorful sauce made using OPA by Litehouse Greek Yogurt Ranch Dressing!You know when you find something really awesome and you want to shout it out from the rooftops about how amazing that certain something is?? That’s totally how I feel today!
I’m super excited because I get to share with you one of my favorite yummy products – OPA by Litehouse Greek Yogurt Dressings! (how fun is that name to say – OPA!) I was lucky enough to get all of these flavors of dressings below sent to me to try and let me tell you – they ROCK.
I couldn’t believe it. I’m serious when I say, these dressings taste AMAZING. Every flavor was full of flavor. You would never in a million years guess that these OPA dressings are made with Greek yogurt and are lower calorie!
And guess what else? They’re gluten free! How cool is that?! They taste great and they’re better for you!
I am a huge casserole lover (if you couldn’t tell by the million casserole recipes I have on here!). As a busy mom, you can never have too many casserole recipes under your belt!
So I cooked up some mushrooms, garlic, green onions and chicken and mixed in some enchilada sauce and OPA Greek Yogurt Ranch Dressing. Tossed it all together with some egg noodles and chopped tomatoes, baked it and BAM. Dinner perfection.
Everyone loved this casserole. So much so that I’ve made it again and again and again. This is now a staple at our house. The best part about this casserole is the flavorful sauce with the OPA Ranch.
You get so much southwestern and ranch flavor without having to add in a ton of different spices. Just a little enchilada sauce and OPA Ranch to get the job done. It’s super creamy and just so yummy.
But don’t take my word for it. Head on out to your favorite grocery store and buy some OPA. You will be so impressed by the quality and taste. And then make this recipe. You’ll thank me later. 🙂
