Bean Burrito Casserole *Untested*

Haven't tried this yet, but it sounds good... I will give a try at some point for sure.. also sounds pretty cheap for 8 servings. It was given to me by MichelleJag on the WW boards...

Bean Burrito Casserole

Servings | 8

1 pound meatless soy crumbles or lean ground beef (I will use the beef)
1/8 cup reduced-sodium taco seasoning (1/2 packet) (indulgence, but not enough for 8 servings to do much damage)
3/4 cup water
15 oz canned yellow corn, drained (I'm sure you could use fresh or frozen)
14 oz canned diced tomatoes with green chilies (mild) *rotel
15 oz fat-free canned refried beans
5 oz tomato paste
2 cup ff Shredded Cheddar Cheese
4 cup cooked brown rice
1 medium onion(s)

Dice onion and saute in large skillet with soy crumbles (or use 1 lb of lean ground meat). Add water and 1/2 packet of taco seasoning. Simmer until sauce thickens. Add canned veggies, tomato paste and beans. Spray a casserole dish with non-fat cooking spray and fill with veggie/bean/beef mixture. Top with 1 c. of shredded fat-free cheddar cheese. Cover with cooked brown rice. Sprinkle remaining cheese over top. Bake covered at 350 until heated through, 20 min. Remove cover and continue baking until cheese is melted, 5 min.
