Tex - Mex Onion Casserole

I have so many recipes with Onions. I have an entire recipe book about Onions.
This casserole has a kick of heat to it. That's how we like it in Texas.

Tex - Mex Onion Casserole

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
A 1 1/2 - 2 quart casserole dish (I make mine in a 2 quart Terra Cotta Bram)

Tex - Mex Onion Casserole.

6 TBS Butter, divided
3 Large Vidalia / Sweet Onions, roughly chopped
2 C shredded Pepper Jack Cheese or Hatch Jack Cheese
1 C Italian Herb Bread Crumbs
2 Large Eggs
3/4 C Heavy Cream
1 tsp Salt
1/8 tsp Black Pepper
1/2 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1 - 4oz. can of Diced Green Chiles, slightly drained.

In a skillet on medium heat:
Melt 4 TBS of the Butter
Add Onions and sauté until tender.

In the Casserole Dish, layer in the following order:
1/2 of the Onions
1 C of the Cheese
1/2 of the Bread Crumbs
Remaining Onions
Remaining Cheese

In a mixing bowl:
Black Pepper
Cayenne Pepper
Green Chiles
Whisk well
Pour into the casserole.

In a small skillet:
Melt the remaining 2 TBS of Butter.
Add remaining Bread Crumbs and sauté until golden brown.
Sprinkle evenly over the casserole.
Bake for 25 - 30 minutes.

Peace in the Kitchen!
