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

  • I've turned into a veritable food cop since my husband had his heart attack. He's gone along with the program alright, but he does miss his tacos & burritos. I'm going to add some fat free cheese and sour cream, & wrap it all in a whole wheat tortilla this weekend. You'll be his new favorite person! - 1/17/08

  • How sad, my first time to visit this site and there are people critisizing others grammar. Are we here to loose weight and be more healthy or to tear other people down? I appreciate the people who were respectful. This sounds like a wonderful recipe and I can't wait to make it for my family - 1/17/08

  • Meckie, the grammar police, is, in fact, incorrect. It didn't TURN deliciously. I'm sure it just sat there. It turned out TO BE delicious, which makes the original statement just fine. And pretentious is no way to live your life. Move on to worrying about your own problems. - 1/17/08
