Meatless Monday– Green Chili Casserole

Hello and welcome to another round of Mexican Meatless Monday!

This week’s recipe is actually inspired by last week’s Chili Rellenos. Even though they were easy, it can get messy to make rellenos. Today I made a dish that gives you similar flavors in a one dish kinda platform.

4 eggs or 1 1/3 c egg beaters

7 oz. can diced green chili

1/2 c cottage cheese

Pour into a sprayed pie pan. IMG_9780 (1024x683)

Sprinkle shredded cheese on top.

Let sit for 10  minutes to cool. IMG_9788

Serve with ketchup and a tortilla. IMG_9800

Speaking of Meatless Mondays (and all other days of the week, actually)…I was lucky enough to get a copy of No Meat Athlete’s new Marathon Roadmap e-book!


Since I recently started eating chicken again I wasn’t sure what to expect from the book…

Guilt? Vegetarian propaganda? 501 ways to make Tofu?

I didn’t get any of that. But what I did get was a pretty solid resource for marathon training in general. The book is broken down into 4 sections:

1. Making it real: Goals and Commitments

2. The Training

3. The Diet

4. The Race

Turns out there is only one section completely dedicated to vegetarianism’s benefits. ( Note: I totally agree with most of them and am just working through my own stuff right now. )

My favorite part of the book was the last section where Matt breaks down final preparations, foods, tips and tricks for the actual race. LOVED this! I’m currently training for marathon #4 and still found it super helpful.

If you have any questions you can check out here.

See you in the morning!

    I love making egg casseroles like that where you just mix everything together and bake it. Yum!

    I actually just signed up for my first marathon, the MCM, later this year. I’m excited/scared/freaking out. I should read that book!

    When I read “Mexican Meatless Monday”, I immediately tacked on “with Monica” to the end. So Random.

    This casserole looks yummy…and it seems easy enough that even I can handle it…hehe!
    Which full did you sign up for? Any tips for picking your first full? I think I’m ready for it :)

    That casserole looks so yummy! Can’t wait to try it!
    I was a vegetarian for a long time too; more for “gross out” factor then anything..and I still have my moments. That book looks really interesting, I’ll have to check it out.

    I made this for dinner tonight. I used greek yogurt instead of cottage cheese because that’s what I had on hand and mixed canned corn with a jarred salsa as well. It was delicious! I added some hot sauce and sliced avocado on the top to give it some extra flavor (and color). I love these simple Trader Joe’s recipes! Keep me coming :)
