One Pan Chili Rellenos Casserole

October 30th, 2020 04:29:00 pm

This is such a delicious savory dinner, perfect for the cooler Fall weather.  You can make it as spicy or as mild as you like, by making minor modifications to suit your taste. Gather these ingredients to begin.

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 chopped yellow onion
  • 3/4 cup red bell pepper
  • 1 teaspoon avocado oil
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/4 tsp allspice (my favorite!!)
  • (2) 4 oz cans of chopped green chilis (I felt this was too scarce and so I would double this, or use layers of fresh ones!)
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp cheddar plus a bit more for the top (I used jalepeno cheddar and it gave it a bit more heat)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 4 eggs beaten
  • dash of tobasco (we like the heat, so you can probably guess... I added more)
  • toppings of sour cream, black sliced olives and chopped green onions (yum... my favorite part is the fresh toppings)
  • fresh chopped jalepenos (optional)


Select a titanium sauce or casserole pan, either will work. See the pans here. Saute the onion, garlic and bell pepper with a pinch of salt until onion is translucent. Next add the ground beef and then pull out excess grease as it is cooked. Season with salt and pepper, cumin, allspice and cook through. Keep in mind it will be going into the oven, so no need to over cook the beef. Also, if you are a vegetarian, just leave the beef out, it will still be delicious. You can substitue in mushrooms or tofu. Get as much of the grease out of the mixture as you can by tilting the pan and using a spoon, and then a paper towel to sop up the rest.

Saute onions peppers garlic


Scoop this mixture out of the pan into a bowl and set aside the mixture to the side. Layer one or 2 cans of the chilis across the bottom of the pan (no need to clean or anything). Sprinkle the cheese over the chilis. Don't worry, the cheese will NOT STICK to your titanium pan. I promise. Next add the ground beef mixture, spreading evenly over the top of the cheese/chilis. I added fresh diced jalepenos at this point... no surprises here! Now add the second can of chilis over the top of the beef mixture.


jalepenos added


In a small mixing bowl (the one you set the meat mixture aside in is fine)... add the milk, sour cream, flour, salt, pepper, beaten eggs and dash of tobasco. Whisk well until smooth and then pour this mixture evenly over the dish.  Bake this casserole at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes until it is set. Yes! Your Titanium Cookware Collection pieces can go directly into the oven. The lids and handles are oven-safe up to 450 degrees. You do not use the lid for this recipe, however.

Egg mixture added over the topCasserole


Add some cheese to the top about 10 minutes before the dish is done. Cool on the cooktop to allow it to set up and become more firm.  Use a silicone spatula to cut this into slices and serve onto plates. Don't forget to top with sour cream, black olives and chopped green scallions. I like to set these out in dishes on the table and allow guests to help themselves to the toppings. Don't forget that the pan will be super easy to clean, which makes cooking that much more enjoyable.  You might like to serve this with a side of black or refried beans and a tomato cucumber salad for something crisp to offset the textures. I hope you enjoy this One Pan Chili Rellenos Casserole.
