Pork and Green Chile Casserole

I work at a local hospital and another job part time, so I'm always on the lookout for good, quick recipes to fix for my family. Some of my co-workers and I exchange recipes. This zippy casserole is one that was brought to a picnic at my house. People raved over it. —Dianne Esposite, New Middletown, Ohio

    Huge hit at my house. The kids loved it. Used rotisserie chicken instead of pork, added black olives, and extra cheese.

    Have made this many times since I found it and the family loves it! so much flavor and super easy. the only change I do is I throw in some salsa verde along with everything else.

    A good dish. It probably won't be on the rotation too much just because we don't eat a lot of pork but it is a nice change from traditional pork recipes. I substituted the canned chilies with the hatch chilies being roasted in our area.

    This was very good and only giving 4 "stars" because I made modifications after reading the earlier comments and for what I had on-hand. Used 4 bone-in chicken thighs (removed skin after frying slightly) put these on bottom of casserole dish with slices of pepper jack cheese on top of each. Combined all other ingredients -- used diced tomatoes with green chilies; 1 can of chilies only and 1 can of Mexican corn -- mixed well and poured over thighs. Cooked for approximately 1 hour -- and my husband and I really enjoyed! Without meat the veggies

    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
