Carne en su jugo translates to "beef in its juices." This was one of my all-time favorite comfort dishes growing up as a child. Green chilies blended with tomatillos, garlic, onions and cilantro, all simmered together with beef and pinto beans. In the recipe below, we make a green chili casserole inspired by my love for the hearty, comforting dish I grew up up eating.
We break down the main components of the dish and use simple ingredients to make it super easy to assemble. We leave out the beans and add cheese to make the perfect casserole version. First we brown ground beef with onions, then sprinkle in a little flour and deglaze with green enchilada sauce and green chilies. This simmers on low heat until thickened, then it's all layered in a casserole dish with tortillas and cheese. It's a simple, super-tasty dish that's sure to be a crowed-pleaser!
