Pork Carnitas Verde Casserole

This is a great meal to make ahead of time to freeze, or just freeze the leftovers for a future dinner! You could also substitute the pork for any sort of meat, just make sure you season it well and that it is cooked before you put it in the casserole. You could also use frozen green pepper/onion blend to assemble this dish quicker.
