Gluten Free Friday: Chicken Spaghetti

This totally started out as a means to make chicken rotel, but when I got out all the ingredients, I discovered I didn’t have a single can of rotel!  This is an unheard of state of affairs because we always have rotel.  But anyway, I had to make some changes.  All these sorts of casseroles […]
