Reviews for Cheesy Chili Casserole
"This recipe sounded good, but after reading some of the other reviews; I thought I'd doctor it up a bit. I added shredded steak and a can of black beans, and served it on tortillas with sour cream, guacamole, and salsa. I would make this again and I think by substituting hamburger for the steak this would make a really good dip with chips, like for a party or something."
"I think this dish is supposed to be more like a quiche. And the chili refers to the green chili peppers not chili as we think of it with hamburger and beans. This is a Mexican inspired casserole."
"I took the suggestions of previous reviewers, added ground beef, a can of black beans and half a packet of taco seasoning mixed together as the first layer. My family LOVED this!! Nothing leftover. This was delicious. Thank you!"
"Add re-fried beans or even black beans. GO WILD!!!!"
"I would use Sirloin, Pork, chicken or even hamburger. This recipe almost sounds like a dip for a party but with the flour and eggs that would be to heavy for a dip. This dish would also be great buy adding your choice of meat with tortillas layered or shredded through out the Casserole.Try it!!!!"
"WHERE ARE THE BEANS ??"
"The name of the recipe is misleading. They should have called it "Cheesy CHILE Casserole;" there is no CHILI in it."
"This was pretty good. I added a pound of ground beef to make it more of a main dish, but the initial 30 minutes in the oven burned the top layer so I'd suggest starting with 20."
