Black Beans And Rice Mexican Lasagna
Serves: 4-6 servings
  • 1 cup cooked brown rice
  • 1 can organic black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can organic corn or ½ package organic frozen corn
  • 1 jar organic salsa
  • 1 package gluten-free corn tortillas
  • 1.5 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 8oz brick of organic cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup chopped green onions
  • olive oil
  • salt, chili powder, taco seasoning (optional)
  • Garnishes:
  • Cilantro
  • Sour Cream
  • Chips and Salsa
  1. In a medium pan, combined 1 cup of cooked brown rice, 1 can of organic black beans (rinsed and drained), ½ package of frozen organic corn and 1 jar of organic salsa. Heat just until the frozen corn begins to thaw and soften. Season with a little salt, chili powder and taco seasoning. Remove from heat and set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, combine 1 brick of softened cream cheese and 1 cup grated cheddar cheese. (Reserve some cheddar cheese for final top of casserole.) Stir until well combined. Stir in ¼ cup chopped green onions. Set aside.
  3. Grease a casserole dish with olive oil. Add a small amount of the black beans and rice mixture to the bottom of the dish, just enough to thinly cover the bottom. On top of that, layer the corn tortillas. I cut mine to fit the dish, but overlapping is fine, too. Layer the dish in this order:
  4. - Thin layer of black beans and rice mixture on top of well-oiled casserole dish
  5. - First layer of corn tortillas
  6. - Layer of black beans and rice mixture on top of first layer of corn tortillas
  7. - Second layer of corn tortillas
  8. - Carefully spread and layer the cream and cheddar cheese and green onion mixture on top of corn tortillas.
  9. - Third layer of corn tortillas
  10. - Add any remaining black beans and rice mixture and sprinkle remaining cheddar cheese on top.
  11. Cover with foil and bake at 350° for approximately 45 minutes or until cheese on top is melted and bubbly.
  12. Serve with cilantro, salsa and chips and sour cream.
