Tips

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.
  • Four South-of-the-Border Beef and Rice Wraps, roll flour tortillas around scoops of leftover casserole; serve them warm or cold.
