Green Bean Casserole for the Holidays

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 during 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! 

How to Make Southwestern Green Bean Casserole

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!! 

This Southwestern Green Bean Casserole was super simple to make. It literally took less than 5 minutes to mix everything together. Combine green beans, cream of mushroom soup, soy sauce, tomatoes and green chiles, pepper, and fried onions. Spread into a baking dish and top with more fried onions.

  • You can make this casserole in advance and refrigerate it a day or two before baking.
  • If you are sensitive to heat, use a can of MILD diced tomatoes and green chiles.
  • Can substitute fried jalapenos for fried onions.
  • You can use any can of cream of soup in this recipe – cream of celery, cream of chicken, or cream of mushroom all work well.
  • For a gluten-free dish, use gluten-free cream of mushroom soup and crushed pork rinds for the fried onions.
  • Can substitute frozen green beans for canned. You will need about 8 cups of frozen green beans for this recipe.
  • Can green bean casserole be frozen? Yes! Assemble the casserole and leave off the fried onions. Cover the casserole dish with plastic wrap and aluminum foil. When ready to bake, thaw completely and bake as directed.

What to Serve with Green Beans

This Southwestern Green Bean Casserole definitely passed the taste test and will be making an appearance on our holiday table. It goes perfectly with all of the traditional fixings. Here are a few of our favorite holiday recipes that go great with this casserole:
