Mexican casserole

Submitted by: DANCEMOM

Introduction

This was an experiment that turned out delicious. This was an experiment that turned out delicious.
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    3 cups pinto beans
    3 cups cooked brown rice
    1-1/2 cups chopped onion
    1 cup chopped green pepper
    1 envelope (45g) burrito seasoning mix
    3/4 cup salsa
    1 tbsp olive oil

Directions

1. Saute onion and pepper in olive oil until soft.
2. Add burrito seasoning and 1 1/2 cups water. Cook until thickened.
3. Mix in beans and heat through.
4. Place cooked rice, bean and vegetable mixture into slow cooker and add salsa. Cook for a few hours. You could probably cook it on low on the stove as well, but I like using the slow cooker.
Optional: Add a few tablespoons of nacho cheese sauce or shredded chedder cheese or low fat sour cream.

    This was fabulous! Our entire family of 8 loved it. I added 2 cans of corn. Next time I will double the beans. Also, had to add about a cup of water to keep it from sticking in the slow cooker. Served with chips and tortillas, topped with grated cheese and sour cream. Terrific! - 7/29/09

  • I used 1 can pinto, 1 can black and 1 can mexican corn drained and double rinsed. Instead of the burrito mix in a packet (high sodium), I use a taco seasoning I go online. Yummy!! Add a few drops of beano if you need to as well. - 4/13/08

  • I loved the idea of this recipe. I tweeked it a bit. Instead of using a slow cooker, I mixed the wet ingrediants on the stove top. I only used one can of beans and added a can of corn. I also added soy crumbles and layered in a baking dish with the rice before adding the bean mixture. YUM! - 1/22/08

  • Love it, I substiuted the burrito seasoning for my own spices, too much sodium for me. I also used black beans and ground chicken. This is a family favorite.
