With the cooler weather it makes it easier to use the oven for cooking. I am sure many of you are great casserole cooks. I love making casseroles. Here is a wonderful new cookbook filled with amazing casserole recipes. 300 Best Casserole Recipes by Tiffany Collins.
I have a few family favorite casseroles I make. I wish I could be more adventurous in my casseroles but in my family, I have picky eaters. They are hard to please with certain ingredients in casseroles. My guys simply want meat and potatoes. I, on the other hand, love rich creamy casseroles. Browsing through 300 Best Casseroles Recipes - I found quite a few recipes to please my guys and myself. On the dedacent side, I would love to make the Spicy Shrimp and Grits casserole or the South of the Border Pork Chop Casserole. For the guys, I like the idea of Beef Burgundy or Italian Beef Pie. Now those they would eat.
A few other tempting recipes:
Black Bean Enchilada Casserole
Bacon and Leek quiche
Paella with sausage
Smoked Gouda Mac and Cheese
King Ranch CasseroleLeftover beef brisket is sensational in this traditional casserole. Many recipes call for ground beef, but the brisket makes this casserole hearty and flavorful.
Makes 8 to 10 Servings
Equipment: 13- by 9-inch (33 by 23 cm) baking dish, greased
2 tbsp olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup chopped onion
2⁄3 cup chopped red bell pepper
2⁄3 cup chopped green bell pepper
2⁄3 cup chopped yellow bell pepper
2 tbsp chopped jalapeño pepper
1 tsp salt
1 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 can (12 oz/375 g) evaporated milk
1 can (10 oz/300 g) diced tomatoes and green chiles
1 can (103⁄4 oz/305 g) condensed beef broth
5 cups shredded cooked beef brisket
12 6-inch corn tortillas, 12 cut into quarters
3 cups shredded sharp (old) Cheddar
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C)
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Sauté garlic, onion, red, green and yellow peppers and jalapeño for 7 to 9 minutes or until tender.
Stir in salt, pepper, cumin, garlic powder and chili powder. Add evaporated milk, tomatoes and green chilies and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in beef.
Place half the tortillas along bottom of prepared baking dish. Top with half the beef mixture and half the cheese. Repeat layers, ending with cheese.
Cover with foil and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes. Uncover and bake for 5 minutes.
Tips: Substitute whole milk for the evaporated milk in a pinch, but the casserole will not be as a rich.
Serve with black bean and corn salsa and a guacamole salad. Don’t forget the frozen margaritas!
