Perhaps people shouldn't chastise others without doing their research. Chili, chile, and chilli all refer to the pepper itself. https://www.merriam-webster.com/words-at-play/usage-chili-chilli-chile

Chile is a country in South America. Chilis are peppers.

True there is no chili in it but there are chiles in it. This casserole is a chile casserole, not a bow of chili. That's why no beans or meat. It's all about the wonderful flavor of green chiles, not chili.

I cut this recipe in half for just my husband and I. I added in shredded pork that I had leftover and some black beans. Instead of putting the "drained" salsa on top, I used some leftover diced tomatoes, then added salsa verde on top after it was done cooking. The middle of this was still fairly gooey, so I wound up putting aluminum foil on it and baking it longer. I served it with some tortilla chips. We thought it was really good, and may even benefit from having some corn thrown in. This definitely seems more like an appetizer though, not a dinner.

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!

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!!!!
