Serves 6

20 Minutes

10 Minutes

  • 1 Package of Del Real Frijoles
  • 1 Package of Del Real Pollo Asado Taco Kit
  • 1-2 Packages of Del Real Cheese & Bell Pepper Pupusas
  • 1 Package of Del Real Carnitas
  • Del Real Fire Roasted Green Salsa or Molcajete Red Salsa
  • Mixed shredded cheese
  • Fresh Jalapenos (if preferred)
  • Sour Cream

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Pre-heat barbecue or grill pan on stove. Spray 9 x 13 casserole pan with non-stick cooking spray. Microwave the frijoles, the carnitas and the chicken from the taco kit as directed; set each aside. Continue with the below steps while heating the above in the microwave. Using red sauce packet from Pollo Asado Taco kit, spread 3 tbsp. of sauce in bottom of pan. Spray 8-10 tortillas from the taco kit on the bottom of the pan. Sprinkle cheese to lightly cover tortillas. Spread the heated frijoles to completely cover the tortillas. Sprinkle the heated carnitas on top of the frijoles. Sprinkle another layer of cheese. Spread remainder of red sauce packet on top. Pour chicken from taco kit on top of the sauce, covering with another light layer of cheese. Bake for 10 minutes just to melt cheese. While the casserole is in the oven, grill pupusas several minutes on each side to melt cheese inside and to heat thoroughly. Also, place fresh, clean whole jalapenos on grill to char. When casserole is done and pupusas are heated through, eat family style. Cut the pupusas in half and serve, with everyone covering their pupusas with the casserole using green sauce and sour cream as they like. Serve charred jalapenos on the side.
