Bug Burn & Bean Casserole


1 16oz jar Bugtussle Burn

1 to 1 ½ cans refried beans

3-4 poblano peppers

8 oz package grated cheese ( I use a mexican mixture of cheddar & monterrey jack)

10-12 soft corn tortillas

Olive oil

Dash: cumin, chili powder, garlic salt


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Remove seeds & veins from poblanos. Cook them in skillet with a little oil until they are fairly soft & then slice them up.

Coat a glass baking dish with a little oil (I prefer olive). Layer 5-6 tortillas on the bottom, then layer of refried beans (this is where I add dashes of the listed spices-because most refrieds are bland). 

Smooth ½ jar Bugtussle Burn over beans.

Sprinkle on ½ of the sauteed poblanos.

Add layer of grated cheese.

Repeat all layers again, topping with cheese.

Cook 45 minutes covered, then uncover for 10 minutes or so to get cheese good & gooey.

Open another jar of “The Burn” & slather on top. Pig totally out!
