It was a busy day at work today! Good thing I had lots of snacks to get me through:
Oatmeal w/ strawberries & coconut, leftover meat-free chili, sugar-free chocolate pudding, string cheese, Special K tomato basil crackers, blueberries and strawberries. The blueberries were so sweet!
For dinner tonight I decided to try Caitlin’s Santa Fe Casserole. She listed it as her favorite casserole ever, so I thought it must be pretty good! My favorite casserole ever is this recipe for Swiss Chicken Casserole. So bad for you, but sooo good. Anyway, back to the healthy recipe 🙂
Isn’t it pretty? Red onion and garlic, mmm.
All the goodies mixed together. I didn’t have any red beans so I used black beans instead.
All set to go in the oven. Now, it only had to bake in the oven for 25 minutes. But it wasn’t a quick meal – I had to cook the brown rice, saute the onion and garlic, and mix the other ingredients first. The kitchen smelled good though!
Doesn’t it look tasty? It was! But I was expecting (and craving) something cheesy, and this was not super cheesy. I added a slice of Laughing Cow swiss cheese. I think just about every dish needs some LC. My favorite thing about casseroles is that you’ve got leftovers for the rest of the week. What’s your favorite casserole recipe?
