Layered Bean Casserole is a perfect side dish for a Mexican meal. It’s time for the monthly Pinterest Challenge Blog Hop, hosted by My Pinterventures. The purpose of this challenge is to motivate the participants (and you, too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! We all have tons of pins that we think we’re going to try. Every month, we choose one and follow through with the plan to make it. This month, I decided to try out a recipe for a Layered Bean Casserole.
I needed a recipe for a meatless, but hearty dish. We had a family gathering and my niece doesn’t eat meat. So, off to Pinterest I went to find a recipe. When I saw this pin for a layered three bean casserole, I thought it would be a good dish to serve. It’s a recipe that was posted on Delish back in 2010.
I did change the recipe to better suit our tastes. We aren’t big fans of hot spicy foods, so I substituted bell peppers for the poblano peppers called for in the recipe. I sautéed them with the onions instead of adding the onions on top of the casserole. I also used a tomato salsa instead of the salsa verde. So, yeah, I ventured away from the inspiration, but I know what my family likes and spicy peppers and salsa verde are not on the favorites list.
One of the things I’ve enjoyed about participating in the monthly Pinterest Blog Hop is being inspired to put my own spin on the crafts and recipes that I’ve pinned.
Layered Bean Casserole
This will make a full 9 x 9″ dish. I worried that it might spill over in the oven, but it didn’t. Yay for no mess!
Layered Bean Casserole
- 1 15 oz can Black Beans
- 1 16 oz Refried Beans
- 1 16 oz Kidney Beans
- 2 Bell Peppers
- 1 Red Onion
- 1 Cup Sour Cream
- 1/4 Cup Milk
- 2 Cups Salsa
- 6 oz Shredded Mexican Cheese Blend
- 9 Corn Tortillas
Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
Slice peppers and onions and sauté in olive oil until tender.
Combine sour cream and milk until well blended.
Spray a 9-inch by 9-inch baking dish with non stick cooking spray.
Arrange 3 tortillas in single layer in baking dish. You’ll need to tear the third one in half to fit the pan.
Layer One: Tortillas, 1/3 of the salsa, 1/3 of the sour cream and milk mixture, black beans, 1/3 of the cheese, 1/3 of the peppers and onions
Layer Two: Tortillas, 1/3 of the salsa, 1/3 of the sour cream and milk mixture, refried beans, 1/3 of the cheese, 1/3 of peppers and onions
Layer Three: Tortillas, 1/3 of the salsa, 1/3 of sour cream and milk mixture, red beans, 1/3 of the cheese, 1/3 of the peppers and onions
Bake for 45-55 minutes until bubbly.
I served this as a side dish with my Easy Prep Taco Salad for a recent small family gathering. They all loved it, so this will go on my make again list. It’s not the prettiest dish, but it is a tasty one!
Some of my guests thought this would make a great dip for Tortilla Chips, too. I think it might be great for a game day party served with chips.
