Expert Tips

Chili powder is a blend of dried chiles, garlic, oregano, salt, cumin, coriander and cloves. The aromatic seasoning is spicy-hot, but its flavor and color vary depending on the brand. Salt-free chili powder is also available.

Garnish this casserole with a sprinkling of shredded Cheddar cheese mixed with a dash of chili powder and oregano. The hot casserole will melt the cheese into a pretty topping.
