Chili Garlic Green Bean Casserole

To celebrate the iconic American dish created by the late Dorcas Reilly, Chadwick Boyd developed three newfangled versions of her classic green bean casserole (still enjoyed in more than 20 million homes every Thanksgiving!). This one brings Indian flavors into the fold with coconut milk, fresh ginger and garlic, and fresh green chili for a bit of heat. The green beans are also cut into 1-inch pieces, as they might be in South India. Add a dash of turmeric to the filling too if you’re a fan of the spice. This could be just the thing to bring to your next Friendsgiving!

For the other two versions, see this Mushroom Puff Pastry Green Bean Casserole recipe and this Old Bay Green Bean Casserole with Crab recipe. Check out Chadwick’s Pumpkin Chai Slab Pie recipe too (complete with bourbon vanilla whipped cream).
