Corned Beef Chili Relleno Casserole

Ok, I’ll admit it, this is not the most pretty casserole in the world, but it is really delicious. It was inspired by my Quick Chili Rellenos, but I didn’t have the poblano chilis, only bell peppers.  This is what happens when you haven’t really planned anything and everyone is hungry for something simple and interesting. Putting this together couldn’t be simpler. It will easily feed eight with a nice salad, or four with leftovers.

The possibilities for this casserole are pretty wide.  I used canned corned beef hash, but if you make your own, or have leftover corned beef in the spring, you could use that instead.  If you want to make this vegetarian, you could omit the corned beef hash.

I used canned green enchilada sauce that I had on hand in my pantry. The green is a good choice because it doesn’t fight with the other flavors.  Just add a little tomato paste to it, and you’re fine. Really, this recipe is so easy you don’t need one, but I’ll write it down anyway.
