Thank you, Destiny Moser, for this recipe that transforms Spanish Rice leftovers into a flavour-packed Tex-Mex casserole! Love your leftovers by layering prepared Spanish Rice into layers of meat, beans, tomatoes, and cheese. Prep ahead for a hassle-free meal that the whole family will enjoy.   


Ingredients

Toppings (optional):chopped fresh cilantro, thinly-sliced green onions, hot sauce 

Preparation
  1. Preheat oven to 425° F. Coat a 9" X 13" casserole dish with non-stick spray and set aside. 
  2. Add beef to Multipurpose Steamer. Cover; microwave on high 5 min or until beef is cooked through. Using Ground Meat Separator, break up chunks. 
  3. Meanwhile, dice peppers. Once beef is cooked, add peppers, rice, and yogurt to steamer. Mix until evenly combined. 
  4. To assemble casserole, spread beans into an even layer in the dish, sprinkle 1 cup cheese over the beans, scatter diced tomatoes overtop, then spoon in the beef and rice mixture and spread into an even layer. Top with remaining 1 cup cheese. 
  5. Bake uncovered for 15 min or until cheese is melted and the casserole is hot.
