Jared Holding His Casserole

This is one our family's favorite pinto bean recipes. This is Jared's creation. He made it all by himself.


Ingredients:

  • 4 cups cooked rice

  • 4 cups refried beans (two 16 oz. cans)

  • 6 eggs

  • 3/8 cup wheat flour

  • 1 small can of green chilis

  • 2-3 cups cheese

Preheat the oven to 375┬░F.

Layer 1 Spread approximately 4 cups of cooked rice on the bottom of a 8" x 11" baking dish. You can use the quick and easy rice or the zucchini rice.

Layer 2 Next spread approximately 4 cups of refried beans on top of the rice. You can use homemade pinto beans or refried pinto beans from a can.

Layer 3 Mix the eggs, flour, and green chilies together and pour the mixture over the beans.

Layer 4 Sprinkle the cheese on top of the egg mixture.

Bake uncovered for 30 minutes.

Optional - Sprinkle diced fresh tomatoes on top of the casserole when it comes out of the oven.

Good Job, Jared! My family really enjoyed your dish. I left the tomatoes off the top since my kids won't eat them. We will make it again! Thanks!

This looks like a great storage recipe if ....

This looks like a great storage recipe if you could use powdered eggs and some type of jar cheese...have you ever considered doing it that way.

I have a quite a few cans of refried beans and was looking for a recipe to make use of them...this fits the bill for everyday use but I would also like to use it as a shelf ready meal
