Notes

The casserole can be topped with any cheese desired. Chopped bacon and crushed pork rinds can also be used for crispy toppings.
If using fresh green beans or uncut frozen or canned, be sure to cut them up into bite sized pieces. This makes it much easier to eat the casserole.
The casserole is a great way to repurpose leftover turkey or chicken.
If needed, raw chicken (or turkey) can be quickly cooked to use in the casserole by poaching or pressure cooking in an Instant Pot.
