Rice & Bean Casserole


Recipe Description
This recipe doubles easily and freezes well. It's popular at potlucks, too :)
Preparation Steps:
Level of Difficulty:
Easy​
Time Needed:
Ingredients:
2 cups cooked rice (white or brown)
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained (15 oz, or 1.5 cups cooked from dry beans)
1 can diced tomatoes with chilis (15 oz)
1 cup frozen corn
1 cup salsa
1 cup sour cream or plain yogurt (reduced fat is OK)
2 cups shredded cheese (I use cheddar or jack; reduced fat is OK)
1 small red onion, chopped​
Serves:
Directions:
Mix rice, beans, tomatoes, corn, salsa, sour cream, onion, and 1 cup cheese in a large bowl.

Spray a 2.5 quart casserole dish with cooking spray and fill with the rice mixture.

Bake uncovered at 350 for 30 minutes. Top with remaining 1 cup cheese and bake another 10 minutes or run it under the broiler until the cheese melts.

You can eat it as-is, or wrap it in a tortilla for a tasty burrito.​

Thanks for posting this recipe. I have been wanting to try to have 3 nights a week as meatless meals and this will be a great main dish.

This sounds very good. Thanks for sharing; I am going to add it to my list of recipes to try. :chef2:

Oh, a question...do you think pinto or kidney beans would work just as well? I like the texture of those better than black beans. :)

It would be fine to use whatever kind of beans you like best.

I wish I could edit the recipe to note that any kind of beans would be fine. Maybe I'll make a suggestion.

I agree that editing would be ideal :yes:

However, in the meantime, you could quote the recipe and add that note in the new message (underneath the quoted part). :)

This sounds sooo yummy!
Black beans are probably my favorite bean, so I'm always super excited to see a new bl.bean recipe.

I can see eating this as a dip with tortilla chips, like you mentioned, in a wrap, all sorts of things.

Thank-you, thank-you, thank-you!!!:applause:



**Oh & to the other Michelle-Pinto beans would probably be super yummy in this as well.:hungry:
Anytime I think Mexican food, I think pintos or bl. beans.

My hubby would flip over this. He adores rice & beans. The kids turn their noses up at it, but the wrap thing, cheese, and sour cream, just might change their minds. I love anything in a wrap too!

Thanks for posting!

Theresa :)

meant to ask...do you know if this freezes well? TY

This sounds like what I'm looking for. I recently had the TexMex eggrolls from Grinders and loved them and this sounds really close to what was in them. I think I'll try this out and do it in the tortilla. I have everything except sour cream.

I've got this in the oven now, and it smells so good. Can't wait to try it.

I used pinto beans, yellow onion, and skipped the tomatoes. :chef2:

I wish I had more! It was really good, and Dave isn't much of a bean eater, but he really liked it.
