Southwestern Green Bean Casserole – perfect holiday side! Del Monte green beans, Cream of Mushroom soup, milk, soy sauce, Del Monte Diced Tomatoes and Green Chiles, French Fried Onions. Can make the day before and bake when ready to eat. LOVE this yummy side dish recipe!!
I’ve been working on our Thanksgiving menu. I am keeping the main dish traditional, but I wanted to play around with some of the side dishes. Chicken Legs always talks about eating Green Bean Casserole at his grandmother’s house at the holidays. I think a lot of people grew up eating the Del Monte® Green Bean Casserole at the holidays. In fact, according to Del Monte, nearly 30 million families are expected to make classic green bean casserole this year. WOW!
I decided to play around with the traditional recipe and add a little southwestern kick to the dish. This smelled AMAZING while it was baking. Better yet, it tasted AMAZING!!
We are huge fans of Del Monte® canned green beans, and this recipe really makes them shine! Del Monte® green beans are canned with a dash of sea salt and water the very day they are picked. This Southwestern Green Bean Casserole definitely passed the taste test and will be making an appearance on our holiday table.
I used the traditional Green Bean Casserole ingredients and added a can of Del Monte® Petite Cut Diced Tomatoes with Green Chiles. I really LOVED the Petite Cut Diced Tomatoes with Green Chiles! I am not a fan of big chunks of tomatoes in my food, so these petite cut diced tomatoes worked great in this casserole.
This Southwestern Green Bean Casserole was super simple to make. It literally took less than 5 minutes to mix everything together. You could even mix this up the day before and refrigerate it to save time on the big day. This makes a lot, so there will be plenty for your holiday dinner and leftovers! Because we all love holiday meal leftovers!!
