Growing up my mom did most of the cooking in our home but on rare occasions my dad would be in charge when she was working late or went to an aerobics class. If my dad was responsible for making sure we had a wholesome meal on a school night, it was normally one of a few options. “Chilly Quilly” was dreaded and I remember as a kid thinking it was the worst ever. My brothers and I don’t really know where the dish name originated or why we disliked it so much. Chilly Quilly, also known to our family as a one pan skillet enchilada casserole, was cooked regularly in my childhood home and now many years later, it’s a comfort food I turn to on busy nights with my own children. This week I added an ingredient and am looking forward to sharing the new family favorite with my dad. Our one pan skillet enchilada casserole with white chili beans and ground beef is perfect for the busiest evenings and both my daughters happily asked for seconds. S&W White Chili Beans added seasoning to the skillet and I’m not sure I’ll ever make these without the extra flavor again.
My dad is truly the best. I grew up in a small Arizona mining town and my dad, along with my uncle and their late father, have worked at the copper mine my entire life. I might not remember him cooking much as a child but now when we visit he is usually the one making meals for all our extended families together.
My daughters have very different food preferences but I can always get them to agree on a dish with beans. S&W beans have been delivering premium quality for over 120 years and are easy to add to recipes for convenience. With so many flavors and varieties, our pantry stays well stocked to help make sure our daughters are getting healthier food options. The 50% less sodium and organic beans are some of our favorites but the white chili beans are the shining star in our one pan skillet enchilada casserole.
One Pan Skillet Enchilada Casserole
- S&W White Chili Beans
- 16 oz red enchilada sauce
- 1 lb ground beef (cooked)
- 1 cup grated colby and monteray jack cheese
- corn tortillas
Stir together beans, enchilada sauce and cooked ground beef.
Layer mix in skillet with torn corn tortillas. Our skillet had two layers of tortillas. Layers should begin with mix and end with tortillas on top.
Top with grated cheese.
Cover skillet and cook on stovetop over low heat until cheese is melted.
Enjoy the one pan skillet enchilada casserole with family before your busy evening routine. After dinner in our home it’s time for homework, reading, baths and bedtime. Knowing there is a full schedule ahead I savor every bite of a home cooked meal at our kitchen table. The only things missing from this childhood memory is my mom’s rice and grandmother’s homemade flour tortillas.
Do you have a meal from your childhood that could use some new flavors too?
