Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Chorizo is a highly-spiced pork sausage used in Mexican and Spanish cooking. Garlic and chili powder flavor the coarsely-ground pork.
  • tip 2
    Kidney beans can be used in place of the black beans. Southwestern-style stewed tomatoes can be substituted for the Mexican stewed tomatoes.
  • tip 3
    To keep the casserole warm at the table, place the dish in an insulated casserole holder. Serve the spicy casserole with warm tortillas and sour cream.
