Cheesy Rice and Bean Casserole

Cheesy Rice and  Bean CasseroleIMG_0084

This is yummy-ness in a casserole dish.  I tried to make a version of this the other evening but it was a complete failure – it was like a brick coming out of the oven…not really sure how I could have messed up a casserole but I did.  I’m happy to note that today’s casserole for lunch was a hit.  It combines the deliciousness of rice, beans and cheese!  It was hearty and satisfying.  I paired it with a nice garden salad and some milk.  The protein combination of the rice and beans make this a complete protein and perfect for your body to digest.

Ingredients:
