My go-to recipe I stole. This is a recipe I got from my very best friend. He made it for me a few times and it's so simple that I made it for him one night as a surprise and BAM! now I make it all the time. So delish - I never get tired of it.
In a deep baking dish (preferably with a lid) layer (this is the order I put them into the dish, but I think it's really neither here nor there) the following ingredients:
- package of cream cheese (I use 1/3 less fat)
- can of well-rinsed low sodium black beans
- jasmine rice (I cook a 1/2 cup ahead of time)
- can of well-rinsed Rotel (tomatoes and diced chilis)
- 1/2 -1 cup of frozen corn
- can of vegetarian refried beans
- layer of pickled jalapeños
Then sprinkle the top with your choice of cheese. We recommend mexican, pepper jack or cheddar. Cover your dish and place in a 375 degree oven for 45 minutes - long enough for it to get ooey gooey with bubbly cheese on top.
I eat mine in a bowl with sour cream or avocado (if they're ripe) and salsa. You can eat it with chips or dig in with a fork. And, it's best accompanied by a Corona & lime.
Don't know what to do when enjoying such goodness?
I've been watching Game of Thrones (Season 3 starts at the end of this month). Or blog reading - today The Wunder Year that I first read about on Lululemon's blog. The idea of wear yoga pants every day for a year sounds both amazingly comfortable and terrifying (um, spandex in public??).
This is Day 11 of 100 Days of Blogging.
