Recipe Ingredients for Tex-Mex Rice and Bean Casserole

1 sprays cooking spray
1 cup corn
1 tbsp green chili peppers
15 oz canned pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1 cup brown rice
3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup fat-free sour cream
1/4 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp table salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
2 tbsp scallion(s), chopped (dark green part only)
2 tbsp shredded cheddar cheese

Recipe Directions for Tex-Mex Rice and Bean Casserole

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Coat a 2-quart glass baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. In a large bowl, combine corn, chilies, beans, rice, 3/4 cup of cheese, sour cream, chili powder, salt and pepper; stir in scallions.

  3. Spoon mixture into prepared baking dish and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons of cheese. Return to oven and bake until cheese melts and casserole is slightly bubbly, about 10 minutes more. Let stand for 5 minutes to firm up before slicing into 6 pieces. Yields 1 piece per serving.

  4. Notes

  5. Change the beans or cheese to your liking: white or black beans, reduced-fat cheddar or Monterey Jack cheeses all work well.

  6. If you want to brown the cheese more, place the dish (make sure it's broiler safe) under the broiler for a minute or two.
