take my word for it wednesday.. this green chile casserole was my grandparents favorite..

 

several years ago.. probably 15 or so my grandma {aka grandmommy} fell and hurt her back, so i would make their meals and take them over once a week when i would go visit..she healed from that injury but then eventually a few years later i was back to making their meals for the week up until they passed away.. of all the dishes i made for the 10 or so years i cooked for them one of their favorites was green chile casserole.. my grandpa {aka pop} would ask for it each week.. i tried to change things up and bring them a variety of dishes but no matter what they always liked this casserole.. it's so simple.. i mean really simple.. but it's very flavorful!! and i love it because it reminds me of them..
