This easy to make spicy and cheesy green bean casserole recipe is a twist on the classic Thanksgiving side dish.

With it’s creamy veggies and crunchy onion top the green bean casserole is one of those foods that is just as much a part of Thanksgiving dinner as the turkey. Like many of our family celebrations and holidays this version of the green bean casserole veers a little from the traditional blending American and Latino flavors. The first time we cooked a Thanksgiving dinner after having moved the to US we wanted to bring a little bit of our own flavors into this holiday so we create a recipe that reflects our family and our holiday traditions which always include a good mixture of American and Latino elements. The chorizo adds a burst of bold flavor and for those who like a little heat adding chipotle powder not only kicks the flavor up a notch but also provides a fantastic smoky taste.

Because we don’t really have a green bean casserole family recipe that was passed on from grandma like many families do I actually did a little research about this classic Thanksgiving dish and found it interesting that the original recipe, which calls for Campbell’s® Cream of Mushroom Soup. Growing up Campbell’s® Cream of Mushroom Soup was one of my favorite comfort foods so I knew when I decided to experiment with the green bean casserole recipe that this was an essential ingredient. With the cream of mushroom soup and the green beans as a base it’s easy to just add your own twist to make this your own and start a family tradition.

One of my favorite things about this recipe is that it’s super easy to make which is a big plus because there is always so much going on for the holidays and I just don’t want to spend all day in the kitchen. I used the Del Monte® Blue Lake® Cut Green Beans because they are made with green beans, water and a dash of sea salt. Just like Campbell’s® soups Del Monte canned vegetables are another one of those products that my family has always used, even when we lived back in Guatemala because they are high quality, delicious and perfect for everyday meals as well as your holiday table.

The first time I made this recipe everyone loved it and when I told them I had used canned green beans they could not believe it.  Because the Del Monte®  Green Beans just have, water and a dash of sea salt you are not adding anything to your recipe except a good quality product with a great flavor.

  3. Jacqui @FlightsFancyMom

    I am not a mushroom person, but the rest of it looks great! Would removing them make much of a difference? Would you add more of something else to replace it?
