Notes

  • Adapted from this recipe: https://www.southernliving.com/recipes/homestyle-ground-beef-casserole-recipe
  • The can of diced green chiles adds such a delicious little punch to this casserole, but if you prefer to keep it on the mild side simply omit this ingredient!
  • Replace one of the cans of diced tomatoes with an equal amount of tomato sauce for a creamier dish.
  • There are four types of cheese in this recipe! FOUR! YUM! I love tasting all of them in the dish, but if you are wanting to simplify the cheese situation feel free to use either Mozzarella or cheddar cheese instead of using both.
  • Feel free to replace the beef with ground chicken, turkey or even pork!
  • 15 minutes before serving, whip up a batch of garlic or cheese bread to serve alongside the dish.
