Green Chile and Pinto Bean Layered Mexican Casserole

Green Chile and Pinto Bean Layered Mexican Casserole

by Pam on September 30, 2013

I saw this recipe on Kalyn’s Kitchen[1] that looked too good to resist. I adapted it a bit and added tomato slices to the top before baking. It tasted AMAZING ! My husband and I loved it (it was too spicy for my kids). I had some of the leftovers today and it was even more flavorful. I topped it with green onions, cilantro, sour cream, and diced avocado and  the combination of flavors and textures was terrific.. I also served this casserole with tortilla chips on the side –  I loved the crunch the chips gave to each bite. Thanks for the great recipe Kalyn!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Spray an 8×8 inch glass baking dish with cooking spray.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the onion and sauté, stirring often, for 4-5 minutes, until they are tender.  Add the garlic, cumin, and oregano then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste; cook another minute or two, stirring constantly, then add the drained beans and cook 3-4 minutes, then mash the beans slightly with a potato masher.  Add the tomatillo verde  sauce and simmer until the sauce is mostly absorbed by the beans, about 5-6 minutes.  Turn off the heat and stir in the sour cream, green onions, and fresh cilantro.

While the bean mixture is cooking, open the whole chiles with your fingers and wipe with paper towels to dry them and remove any remaining seeds. In the prepared glass baking dish make a layer with half of the whole green chiles.

Next layer half of  the bean mixture and half of the cheese.

Repeat. Layer slices of tomatoes on top.

Cover with foil and bake 20 minutes.  Remove the foil and bake for 20 minutes longer, until the casserole is bubbling.  Turn the oven to broil and cook, watching carefully, for a few minutes until the cheese is starting to become golden brown. Remove from the oven and let cool for 5 minutes.

Serve topped with sour cream, green onions, cilantro, diced avocado, and with a side of tortilla chips. Enjoy.

Slow Cooker Pork and Green Chile Stew

Chunks of lean pork, slow cooked in the crock pot with tomatoes, green chiles and jalapeño for a delicious weeknight meal with a little bit of heat!

Serve this with tortillas, or over brown rice with a little light sour cream and a slice of avocado if you wish and you’ll have a delicious meal.

This recipe is really so versatile – you can add more broth if you
want more liquid, you can also add tomatillos, cilantro, and make it
your own. For speed and convenience I used canned green chiles and
jalapeno, but you can certainly use fresh and roast your own. This has a little bit of kick, but you can certainly turn it up by adding more jalapeños or chile powder.

I bought a boneless loin roast and trimmed quite a bit of the fat off before cooking, so keep it in mind that you’ll lose some meat.  I
like to brown the meat before adding it to the crock pot for best
results and add a little flour to pork as it browns
before adding it to the crock pot so that it thickens a bit. If you have gluten allergies, you can
skip this step. If you don’t have time to brown your meat no worries, it
will still work out fine. Enjoy!
