I love to cook with tasty green chilies and use recipes featuring them when I entertain. This hearty casserole has a big pepper taste in every bite.—Nadine Estes, Alto, New Mexico

"I couldn't find the canned chili peppers, so I picked up some poblano peppers at the farm stand. I steamed them in the microwave, then was able to flatten them out on the bottom of the casserole. I also added a fresh hot pepper to the ground beef and onion saute, and used pepper jack cheese. It certainly wasn't bland with those additions. We enjoyed the meal and the leftovers were good too."

"This was quick and easy for me to make, the kids helped. Smelled incredible while it was baking but we were all a little dissapointed with the flavor. It was superisingly bland. Maybe I will add a tomatoe and chilie mixture and a fewmore spices to flavor it up next time. Salsa and sour cream possibly?"
