Green Chile Casserole Recipe

I absolutely love Mexican food.  I always experiment with different ingredients to see what new tasty dish I could come up with and anything cheesy is a bonus in my eyes.  Today I am home from work feeling under the weather and a nice hot lunch sounded good.  I starting looking through the fridge and pantry to see what I could come up with and decided on this Green Chile Casserole.


1 lb. ground turkey
8 oz. canned diced green chilies
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/4 tsp. white pepper
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
8 oz. can of tomato sauce
8 oz. grated white cheddar
12 oz. grated Mexican style cheese blend
4 eggs
2 cups milk
1/4 cup masa flour


1.  Brown ground turkey and add green chilies, spices and tomato sauce.  

2.  Spray the bottom of a 9" x 13" baking dish with cooking spray.

3.  Place meat mixture in the bottom of the baking dish.

4.  Sprinkle both cheeses on top of the meat mixture.

5.  In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, milk and masa flour together 
and pour over the top of the other ingredients.

6.  Bake at 350 for 1 hour covered.

7.  Bake for an additional 5 - 10 minutes uncovered to lightly brown.

8.  Serve with a dollop of sour cream and salsa on top if desired.

Serves 8 VERY generous portions.

  2. This sounds great. I live in El Paso, TX and I haven't seen this before. We have access to Hatch, NM green chiles and I have a freezer full. This will be on my list of dishes to serve when the gang is here at Christmas. They will love it.
