Santa Fe Casserole

Hands down, this casserole is my favorite casserole… ever.  And that’s quite a brave statement.

 

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup red onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon garlic
  • 1/2 tablespoon EVOO
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1/2 tablespoon pepper
  • 1/2 can red beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 and 1/2 cup brown rice, cooked (I used white in this version because we’re all out of brown)
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 and 1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 large green pepper, chopped

Preparation:

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees and spray a casserole dish with EVOO spray.
  • In a skillet, cook the onion, garlic, and EVOO on Medium High until tender.  Add the salt and chili powder.
  • In a large mixing bowl, mix together the pepper, milk, beans, COOKED brown rice, eggs, cheddar cheese, and green pepper.
  • Pour mixture into casserole dish and sprinkle with extra pepper.
  • Bake casserole for 25 minutes or until center is firm.
  • Let cool 5 minutes and serve.
  • Enjoy!
