Number of Servings: 10

Ingredients

    1 can black beans
    1 can kidney beans
    1 can pinto beans
    1 package ground veggie beef
    1 can of mexican style corn
    1 bell pepper
    1/2 cup mushrooms
    1/2 cup onions
    3 tomatoes
    1 tbsp taco seasoning
    1 box instant spanish rice mix

    texmex cheese sauce:
    1 package lite firm tofu
    1 12oz jar of salsa
    2tbsp nutritional yeast
    1/4 tsp tumeric
    1 tbsp cornstarch
    1/4 cup water

Directions

This meal is similar to a chili but not in a thick tomato sauce, more of just a mix of texmex stuff....

Steps:
Well, there isn't too much work involved, basically add everything to the pan (except for sauce & rice) and cook for about 10-15 minutes. Just make sure the dice up the veggies and drain the beans before adding to the pan.

Sauce:
blend all ingredients in a blender for a few minutes until smooth (or mostly smooth) Add to a non stick pan (different from the 1 above) cook for five minutes, then wisk until smooth.

Add sauce to the other pan, add the rice and rice mix to the pan with everything else, and stir, bring to a bit of a boil and cover. Once rice seems cooked (5-10 minutes) you can eat!!

Enjoy!

Variations:
-Add some macaroni noodles to make a great tex mex macaroni casserole instead of the rice, though I rarely do because this meal is already higher in carbs. (Though it is also very high in fibre so that makes the net carbs lower!)
-Also you can use canned beans in tomato sauce, and add bbq sauce for a bbq version of this recipe instead of the cheesy sauce
- for lower carb, just omit the spanish rice all together, still great.


This is a great main dish, or it can also be a side. The serving size is based as a main dish portion.

  • Pretty good. I left out the mushrooms for my daughter, and we didn't have spanish rice so I used basmati. We'll definitely try this again, though we might use one of our tried and true cheeze sauces that we love just because we love it. - 4/20/10

  • This was good. I had to use regular tofu, but that didn't add too many calories per serving. I used more taco seasoning and added some cilantro. I also found it needed a bit more salt. - 12/1/09
