Have you ever tried hatch chile recipes?? They are just so versatile. You can make a similar dish in the oven.

Follow our green chile rice for those directions. It is a lot quicker using this method though.

Let’s start with a few basic tips:

For reference, this is the pressure cooker I have and use for all recipe creations.

They add a lot of flavor to any dish and they are in season right now! I got ours at the new Albertsons on Broadway in Boise, ID. 

There were a few “heat levels” to choose from too, mild was what we got.

Take a peek at how we incorporated them into this sausage and rice casserole.

Beautiful right??!!

Don’t be too afraid. They have mild to extra spicy varieties. Just choose your desired heat level.

  • I have bought hatch chiles in a can before but was excited to see fresh, big, and beautiful ones at the Albertsons on Broadway.
  • They were having cooking demos, free samples, and even roasted my chiles right in the store!

You can cook with them as is diced up but smoked chiles or roasted are better.

Either way you want to remove the seeds, skins, and membrane. Otherwise they will be over the top spicy.

I had an opportunity to see just how they did it using large drums. You could hear them pop and crackle as their skins were becoming blackened.

  • From there it is easy to peel the skins right off they said and add it to any dish you like. Or lay them right on top of a burger!

This is how our Instant Pot sausage casserole turned out!

Our hatch chiles gave this pressure cooker sausage rice casserole an added kick of flavor and a bit of heat!

Here’s what you need 

  1. Fresh hatch chiles 
  2. Sausage – We used a roll of pork ground sausage.
    1. Spicy version is great for this dish if you like heat
    2. If you want to use chicken use our Instant Pot chicken and rice recipe

Rice – you add it uncooked which makes it a great one pot dinner. I haven’t tried with brown rice yet, it would increase cook time slightly

  1. Celery
  2. Bell pepper
  3. Broth – I used half chicken stock and half vegetable 
  4. Cream of mushroom soup
  5. Peppers and onion
    1. diced bell peppers optional

Green onions are optional but add some extra texture when sprinkled on the top when done. We love them on top of our Instant Pot enchilada rice.

Steps to take for making a Ninja Foodi casserole of this sort:

Use any brand of pressure cooker you have though.

Time needed: 10 minutes.

Instant Pot Sausage Rice Casserole

  1. Saute

    Press saute function and add the oil. Then add the sausage. could use ground turkey or chicken sausage if you’d rather I prefer spicy ground sausage. If using above I’d add a dash of cajun seasoning
    cook until outsides are no longer pink

    Add diced bell pepper, onion, celery at this point if desired
    Turn pot off and deglaze pot with a bit of your stock/broth.

  2. Add ingredients

    Whisk together broth and soup until smooth and add to your pot. Pour this in. Add chiles and add the rice on very top, do NOT stir.
    Gently submerge uncooked rice into liquid below.

  3. Cook

    Cook on low pressure for 10 minutes, allow to naturally release steam for 2 minutes, then do a quick release. Stir and enjoy (will continue to thicken as it sits)

If you want to make a version of this in the oven, make our green chile chicken casserole. Watch our recipe video below to get an idea of how easy it is to throw together.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb pork sausage ground, regular or spicy version is great
  • 2 stalks celery diced
  • 2 tbsp hatch chile I used roasted – skin, seeds and membrane removed, then diced – I used the mildest version, can use as much as you’d like depending on your heat level preferences (could dice them fresh if you don’t have the means to roast them too, they will soften in the IP)
  • 1/2 onion diced
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 1/4 c broth chicken or vegetable
  • 1 c rice white, uncooked
  • 1/2 bell pepper diced, optional
  • 1 green onion diced, optional
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Instructions

  • Set your pressure cooker to saute, add your olive oil and sausage. Break up into smaller pieces and cook for about 3 minutes.
  • Add your diced onion and bell pepper if you choose to add them as well (can add chiles now or later). Cook until sausage is no longer pink.
  • Turn your pressure cooker off, cancel button (important step to avoid the burn message showing up later).
  • In a bowl whisk together your broth and cream of mushroom soup so it is pretty smooth.
  • Leave ground sausage mixture in and spread out evenly on the bottom of your pot.
  • Then pour your soup/broth mixture on top of that, do not stir!
  • Add your diced celery and hatch chiles, then sprinkle your uncooked rice on the very top and just gently push down so rice is submerged in liquid. DO NOT Stir.
  • Close your lid and steam valve and set to pressure low for 10 minutes.(If you do not have a low option just hit your rice button.)
  • Allow for a 2 minute natural release, then do a quick release and then quickly lift the lid off so condensation on inside of lid doesn't fall into the casserole.
  • Stir just slightly and allow to sit for at least 5 minutes to naturally thicken.
  • Serve and top with diced green onions or chives on the top!
