Our daughter found a recipe online, I don't know what website she was looking around in, that is the base idea behind this casserole. We all loved just the cheesy hominy she made when we home on vacation. I just added a few of our favorite things to it! The diced green chilies are not 'hot', and they really make the flavor 'pop' in this dish.

You can easily substitute any kind of meat, or not use meat at all. Same goes with switching other veggies, and you can use any kind of cheese you like.

1 16oz pkg

1 8oz pkg

I'M NOT SURE WHAT SIZE MY CROCKPOT IS, IT IS THE SMALLER OVAL HAMILTON BEACH MACHINE.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Mix the ingredients in the crockpot. Since I was here to keep an eye on the cooking food, I set the crockpot on high [my old crockpot's high setting isn't as hot as other machines I've had].
2
Check the cooking process in half hour intervals and stir the contents in the crockpot so the cheese is mixing well as the food cooks.
3
Once the crockpot's cheese is well blended and food is hot, about the 2-3 hour mark, turn the crockpot down to keep warm or low setting. Let food simmer until you are ready to serve.
