Chipotle Taco Casserole

with Beans, Green Pepper, and Mexican Cheese

Beans! Beans! They’re not just good for your heart. These beans are so full of delicious dynamic flavors, they’re practically a work of art. The filling in this casserole has borlotti beans and green pepper simmered in Southwestern spices and chipotle chili. It gets wedged between two layers of tortillas, topped with cheese, and baked in the oven until piping hot. And when it comes out all hot, melty, and steamy, all that’s left to do is add a drizzle of crema to cool things off.


Produced in a facility that processes eggs, milk, fish, peanuts, sesame, shellfish, soy, tree nuts, and wheat.

Baking Dish
Medium Pot
Aluminum Foil
Small Bowl


Preheat and Prep

Wash and dry all produce. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly oil an 8-by-8-inch baking dish. Halve, core, and seed green pepper, then cut into small squares. Trim, then thinly slice scallions, separating greens and whites. Halve and core tomato, then cut into small cubes. Drain and rinse beans.

Cook Veggies

Heat a large drizzle of oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Add green pepper and scallion whites. Cook, tossing, until tender, about 5 minutes. Season with Southwest spice, ¼ tsp chili powder, salt, and pepper. TIP: Add more chipotle for extra heat, but save some for the crema.

Simmer Beans

Stir 3 TBSP tomato paste into pot (we sent more). Let cook for about 1 minute. Stir in beans and ¾ cup water. Let simmer until slightly thickened, 2-4 minutes.

Layer and Bake Casserole

Arrange three tortillas in a single layer on the bottom of your oiled baking dish, cutting one tortilla in half to fit. Add all of the bean mixture to dish and spread out evenly. Layer remaining tortillas on top, again cutting one in half to fit. Gently press down on tortillas to remove any air pockets. Scatter cheese over top. Cover dish with aluminum foil. Bake in oven until filling is hot and cheese melts, 20-25 minutes.

Mix Crema

Meanwhile, in a small bowl, stir together sour cream, 1 TBSP water, and as much of the remaining chili powder as you like. Season with salt.

Rest and Serve

Once casserole is done baking, remove from oven and let rest 5 minutes. Cut into four squares and divide between plates. Drizzle crema over top. Garnish with scallion greens and tomatoes serve.
