Cooking with Brown Rice: Beef & Rice Chile Relleno Casserole

The inspiration for this recipe came from one of my favorite casserole recipes, chile relleno casserole. I added rice and hamburger to it and it was really good! My family enjoyed it very much. I served refried beans and a salad with it.

Beef & Rice Chile Relleno Casserole

1 lb hamburger
½ onion, chopped
2 – 7oz cans chopped green chilies
5 cups cooked brown rice
3 to 4 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup milk
2T whole wheat flour
4 eggs
½ t salt

In a large frying pan cook hamburger and onion until meat is no longer pink and onions are soft. Add the chopped green chilies and brown rice. Stir to combine ingredients. Spoon hamburger rice mixture into a 9x13 pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray. Sprinkle grated cheese over the top.

In a bowl combine with a wire whip the milk, flour, eggs & salt. Pour this mixture over the casserole. Bake at 325 for 45 minutes.

Enjoy!! :)


  1. This looks fantastic. My husband is sensitive to eggs, so I will replace half the eggs with a flax and boiling water combination. Thanks!.........Denise

  2. I can't wait to try this, it looks very yummy! Thanks for sharing with us.

  3. Looks yummy--I'll have to try this at my house!
    Thanks ,

  4. Funny...a friend made this a few days ago and we loved it. We are vegetarian and I like the idea of putting the rice in ( the more goodies in the same pot the better- I'm a one pot cooker!)but my question: is what you changed for this recipe just adding the rice and hamburger?
    I'm ready to have a second try at the sourdough. You seemed to have had such success! Thanks so much for your recipes!

  5. Hi Jessica, I added the rice and hamburger and adjusted the amount of cheese, milk and flour.. my original recipe had 1 1/2 lbs of cheese, 1 1/2 cups milk and 1/4 cup flour.

    Good luck with your sourdough endeavors!!
