I love a good classic burrito bowl, but sometimes I need a shortcut and that is why I love this casserole so much! This uses just a handful of kitchen and pantry staples you probably already have! Everything is baked in the same dish, and it is so easy to customize it to suit your tastes. Healthy doesn't have to be boring; it doesn't get much tastier than this!
Only 6 ingredients needed for the casserole, plus whatever else you have on hand for the toppings:
It couldn't be simpler to make:
step one: put cooked rice in the bottom of a 9x13 casserole dish
step two: place the peppers, corn, beans and tomatoes on top of the rice
step three: top with cheese
step four: cover with foil and bake for 50 minutes, then remove foil and continue baking an additional 10 minutes
While this casserole can be eaten as-is I always like to throw a few extras are on top once it is done. I like to add a bit of lettuce for crunch, some avocado for creaminess, and some spicy ranch, or taco sauce. You can also add jalepeno, sour cream, or anything else you would usually add to your burritos.
Preheat oven to 400 F
In a 9x13 casserole dish, add rice, followed by peppers, corn, beans, tomatoes, finishing off with the cheese
Cover with foil, bake for 60 minutes, or until cheese is bubbling, removing the foil for the final 10 minutes of baking
Serve warm topped with your favorite toppings
