Reviews for Pork and Green Chili Casserole
"It was easy to make and enjoyed by everyone even the picky eater."
"I made this exactly as recipe called for. It was okay but nothing that jumped out. I had 3/4 left over (3 of adults eatting). The second night I added a can of Mexicorn and a can of regular Rotel. I would give this 5 stars the second night. Rotel gave it a much needed kick."
"I'll have to try this one, it sounds great! Let you know later what happens (especially when I add my usual to the recipe!) Mr. Cookasaurus"
"corn makes a good addition"
"Made this for years. My husband likes. I put in chili powder and 1 C cheese."
"I added some onions and cilantro as well, really good !"
"I made a few adjustments: boneless skinless chicken thighs instead of pork, roasted Hatch chilies instead of canned, converted rice (partially cooked) instead of quick cooking rice. I probably used closer to a cup of cheese than a half cup because I like cheesy dishes to be gooey."
"Our family loved this recipe. We like chili verde, but this is alot easier and faster.J. Wenatchee, Wn."
"This was a hit with my husband and my adult son. I substituted boneless, skinless chicken thighs for the pork since my husband prefers to avoid eating pork. It tasted great anyway. Also, the "quick cooking brown rice" had me a little confused. All I could find at the market was Uncle Ben's instant brown rice that cooks in 10 minutes. That must have been what the recipe author had in mind because it worked out fine."
