Cheryl's Low Carb Green Chile Burger Caserole

Cheryl Chavez


This is a very tasty low carb casserole. We love it!
I serve this casserole with a small green salad.
It is easily tweaked to suit your family's taste. You can add bacon for a bacon cheese burger taste.
Add some BBQ sauce to make a tasty BBQ Burger.

  • 7Remove from oven and let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
