Hatch Chili Casserole

Are you familiar with Hatch Chili's? They grow in New Mexico and are easily found in Texas and the Southwest. I'd never seen them here until this summer. Our local Hy Vee store featured them in an ad, along with serving suggestions and recipes. I didn't want to just roast them or make salsa. This is a delicious, easy main dish! You could substitute almost any chili for the Hatch. I am not a big fan of hot chili's. These added a nice touch of heat but not the same sense of heat you get with jalapenos.




HATCH CHILI CASSEROLE

1 1/2 CUP FRESH ROASTED HATCH CHILI'S
2# HAMBURGER MEAT BROWNED & DRAINED

  2. Julie...we live in Nebraska too! My parents retired to New Mexico and we LOVE hatch chiles. I roasted and froze a TON for winter use. I will be trying your casserole soon :)
