Green Chile Casserole Recipe

My mom did 99.9% of the cooking in our house as I was growing up, but there are three things my dad is the master of in the kitchen – frying the corn tortillas for our family’s traditional stacked enchiladas, melting cheese on Saltines in the toaster oven, and making Green Chile Casserole.

This is one of my favorite comfort foods.Ā  It is creamy, cheesy, and flavorful without being spicy.Ā  I don’t do spicy.

Start by browning ground beef and onions together, drain it, then mix in the corn, green chiles, cream of chicken soup, and milk and just cook it all until it’s heated through. No bubbles required.

Next, grab a 2 quart casserole dish, grease it, and spoon a bit of the meat mixture into the bottom of the pan.

My mom has a casserole dish that is perfectly shaped for this casserole, but my dish was a bit wider and more shallow, so I tore up the extra tortillas and sprinkled them in the extra space.

Then pour on all of the extra sauce on top of the casserole.

cover the dish, and bake.

The casserole comes out perfectly melty and the corn tortillas around the outside add just a bit of crunch.

It’s pretty much perfection.

You could top it with Cholula or salsa for a little more kick, but I’m a Green Chile Casserole purist.Ā  It is perfectly delicious on its own.
