Roasted Poblano, Black Bean, Queso and Chorizo Casserole
As if I need an excuse to have a party...with Cinco de Mayo this coming Thursday and The Kentucky Derby on Saturday afternoon...I thought why not begin celebrating Monday night...with this fun and festive Mexican dish!
Plus all you'll need is Queso Cheese...
Roasted and seeded...
There are so many ways to do this, but here I placed my six poblano peppers in a cast iron skillet and placed it in a 400 degree oven for about 20 minutes.
Next, I placed the charred peppers in a brown paper bag and sealed it up for 10 minutes.
Last, I easily peeled the charred skin off the outside of the poblanos and seeded the peppers.
Layered with Mexican chorizo and black beans...be sure to cook and drain the chorizo prior to baking the casserole!
then baked in a glass casserole dish at 375 for 12 to 15 minutes...be sure to top it with more cheese!
All that's missing below are come crunchy tortilla chips and a lime margarita! (Maybe homemade guacamole and sour cream too!!!)
Enjoy! We did!
