  • 1/2 can red beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained

  • 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.

  • Pour mixture into casserole dish and sprinkle with extra pepper.
  • Bake casserole for 25 minutes or until center is firm.
