Like so many others my family really loves Mexican food. It’s the one thing we can usually all agree on when choosing a restaurant. Several years ago I found a recipe for a black bean casserole in a magazine and started making it with chicken for an easy dinner option.
The great thing about this one is that you can change it up to add, exchange or exclude some of the ingredients. Bring it back to its vegetarian roots by excluding the chicken. Use pinto beans, kidney beans or some combination of both. Change up the cheese mixture by using Monterey Jack or Queso cheese. Try adding corn or different varieties of salsa. The possibilities are many and I’m pretty sure that you can easily find a winner.
One more thing. Similar to dishes like lasagna, and other casseroles, it freezes well so you can make two for dinner and freeze one for another time.
