Fun fact! This recipe is the very first real recipe that I learned to make outside my family’s kitchens. This is the first recipe that we made during my 7th grade home economics class. How crazy is that? This isn’t that exact recipe (or at least I don’t think so), but it sure is close.
Another fun fact! Ancho chipotle chili powder is NOT the same thing as chili powder. NOT. THE. SAME. I made this recipe with ancho chili chipotle powder thinking that this would be the same thing. It’s not. Not at all. Our faces got very warm on the inside. Thank goodness for guacamole.
This texas hash recipe is a great all-in-one meal with lean protein, lots of veggies, and slow (slowly digesting, better for your blood sugar levels) carbs. The original recipe for this casserole called for instant rice, ground beef, no celery, and no beans. I added or changed these things to pretty up it’s nutritional profile.
