Now THIS is a side dish everyone can get behind! Creamy Green Beans and Mushrooms with Chorizo - because Chorizo makes everything taste better! This recipe is creamy and savory. It's smokey from the chorizo. And it's nutty from the mushrooms. It's hearty, and oh-so-yummy! It's my new version of a Thanksgiving green bean casserole and it's fresher, has more texture, and has more depth of flavor.
Clean beans and snip ends
Peel skin off cooked chorizo lniks and break up sausage into pan
slice the scallions and the mushrooms
Preheat oven to 400 F degrees.
Preheat frying pan to high heat and cook the chorizo for 4-minutes to start rendering out the fat. Add the sliced mushrooms and 1/2 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper. Cook for 5 minutes. Add a teaspoon of olive oil if the pan is too dry. Next, add the scallions and stir.
Stir in the flour until everything is coated and the flour is all moistened. Add 1 cup of the broth and stir until you have a very thick mixture. Then mix in the second cup of broth and the milk. Bring back up to a simmer stirring frequently as it thickens.
Pour over the green beans in the casserole pan and stir to combine. Bake in the oven uncovered for 20 minutes.
