What makes a recipe a Christmas one you ask. Well, simple...if you eat it at Christmastime we consider it a Christmas recipe. :-)
I'm going to share Krystle and Ty's Green Bean Casserole (ty is my big bro). It's not your typical green bean casserole but we think you'll like it.
2 cans of green beans or 16oz bag of frozen ones
1 can cream of mushroom (or chicken)
1 can of rotel
1 can of Frenches French Fried Onions
1lb block of Velveeta Cheese
8 strips of bacon
Okay, so first of all cook your bacon - microwave or frying pan doesn't really matter. After that's done start mixing up your casserole. In a 9x13in casserole dish pour out your cream of mushroom and your green beans and your rotel (drain it first!) and about half of the onions - stir to coat. Next cut up 1/2 - 3/4 lb of the velveeta cheese into small cubes and place them all over the top of the casserole. Bake in the oven like a regular green bean casserole 15 - 20 minutes at 350. Take the casserole out and stir it up to mix the cheese in. Now crush up the strips of bacon and sprinkle the pieces all over the top of the dish and add the remaining onions around the borders of the casserole. Bake for another 5 minutes and then serve!
Sorry there are no pictures :-( technical difficulties abound at Christmastime apparently...
It's so delicious and if you like spicy food you can get the spicy rotel...if not you can leave it out. We view recipes more like suggestions in this house anyways...so feel free to make this one your own!
