Southwest Vegetarian Bake
Total TimePrep: 40 min. Bake: 35 min. + standing
This casserole was so good that we wrapped it in tortillas. Believe me, you won't miss the meat! As suggested, I did add about a half pkg. of mild taco seasoning. I don't think it would have been as enjoyable without it. It's worth the time and effort that goes into this dish. Would be a hit at picnics as an appetizer using small wraps too.
This was really good! I used Minute brown rice, 2 cups cooked according to the directions, and for the salsa, Pace Hot Picante Sauce. Although the directions did not mention draining the Rotel tomatoes, I did. As another reviewer suggested, I sauteed the onions just a bit, but next time I will skip that step. I made tortilla chips from whole wheat tortillas cut into 8 wedges, brushed on both sides with melted butter, topped with sea salt and baked for 10 minutes at 350. I also served avocado slices as a side. This is a recipe I will recommend to others and definitely make again.
A tasty recipe! I make this dish on meatless Monday at least 2x a month. Serve it with avocado salad and you’ve got dinner. Sometimes I double it for leftovers for lunches during the week
A great recipe! I made some substitutions- white rice for brown, and instead of tomatoes, I added another small can of corn. I added a taco seasoning like another review suggested and I found it very flavorful.
My only complaint is that after 45 minutes it eas still a bit soupy....I let it stand and rest but it never thickened up. Ultimately, I put it back in the oven and cooked it down. It was great after that and after re-cheesing the top. The waiting process turned my original topping hard and crusty....
For those of you that have made this. How do you think a little cilantro would be in it.? Making it for a potluck.
I found it too bland
Thanks for the tasty recipe. My daughter has a rice allergy so I used quinoa instead (cooked in a rice cooker with veggie stock). I added half of a chipotle pepper and a tablespoon of the chipotle adobo sauce, regular diced tomatoes(what I had on hand), taco seasoning, And sautéed onion garlic and bell pepper. It turned out well and all my carnivores loved it!
Excellent basic recipe!
Great casserole - will definitely make again.
