Chile Relleno Casserole
So today I thought I’d make a Chile Relleno Casserole, except I needed more protein in it than normal. So I thought I’d put ground meat in it and then I decided to flavor it with taco seasoning. Those were all great choices and it turned out to be a recipe I will make on a regular basis!
Turned out savory and not spicy. I might add a little cayenne next time just for me, but for the rest of the world, this is probably just right and great for families with kids.
There’s really not a lot to this, or any fancy spices in it to make it difficult to cook. You probably have anything you need to make this in your fridge and pantry right now. This is a rare recipe where I will use my oven to cook, but it just makes sense for this Chile Relleno Casserole recipe.
