Pork, Black Bean, and Rice Casserole


Hubby and I go grocery shopping only once a week because of the stay-at-home order due to the Coronavirus. We got lucky and found a 25-pound pork shoulder roast for $0.59 per pound! Though it's only the 2 of us at home, we could not pass up such a great bargain. We cut the roast up into 2-pound chunks and individually vacuum packed them with our FoodSaver. I made this with items in my pantry and it is filling and delicious.

1 9x13-inch casserole


  • 2 pounds pork shoulder, cut into 1-inch cubes

  • ¾ cup water, divided

  • 1 teaspoon salt, divided

  • ½ cup diced onion

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can cream of chicken soup

  • 1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes with green chile peppers (such as RO*TEL®)

  • 2 (4 ounce) cans chopped Hatch chile peppers, drained

  • 1 cup instant white rice (such as Minute®)

  • ½ cup frozen corn

  • ¼ cup salsa

  • ½ teaspoon chili powder

  • ½ teaspoon cumin

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided


  1. Combine pork cubes, 1/2 cup water, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a Dutch oven. Cover and cook over medium heat for 20 minutes, stirring every 5 minutes. Uncover, raise heat to medium-high, and cook, stirring constantly, until the water evaporates. Cook until pork starts to brown in its rendered fat, about 10 minutes. Add onion and cook for 5 to 10 minutes more. Add minced garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

  2. Add black beans, cream of chicken soup, tomatoes, Hatch chiles, instant rice, corn, salsa, 1/4 cup water, 1/2 teaspoon salt, chili powder, cumin, black pepper, and 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese. Stir to combine.

  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking dish.

  4. Pour pork mixture into the prepared baking dish and bake until thoroughly warmed, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from oven and top with remaining cheese. Let sit until cheese has melted.

Cook's Notes:

Cooking pork shoulder in this method ensures that the pork will not dry out.

Three or four fresh roasted Hatch chiles can be used in place of canned.
