green chile casserole
Tortillas, lots of cheese, ground beef and green chiles- I knew this casserole was going to be good and it was better than good. It was super good. I loved it and my kids really, really loved it.
green chile casserole (blog: Taste and Tell)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 pound grated cheese (I used Cheddar)
1 cup milk
1 pound ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
salt to taste
garlic to taste
1 tablespoon oregano
2 (4 ounce) cans diced green chiles
1 (10 ounce) package corn tortillas, each tortilla cut into eighths
Preheat oven to 350. In a saucepan, combine the soup, milk, and the cheese (reserving some cheese for topping the casserole). Once the cheese is melted, stir in the green chiles.
In a skillet, brown the beef with the onions. Add in the salt, garlic and oregano.
In a well greased 9x13 casserole dish, layer half of the tortilla strips. Spread 1/2 of the beef mixture on top, followed by 1/2 of the cheese mixture. Repeat layers. Sprinkle reserved cheese on top.
Bake in a preheated oven until heated through and cheese is melted, about 30 minutes.
What I have to say- I used half cream of mushroom soup and half cream of chicken soup and I think it added some depth. I also used whole wheat tortillas.
