Mexican Bean Baked Casserole

Making a casserole is a once in a while thing in my house. I have made this Mexican Bean Baked Casserole a handful of times and thought I would pass it on.

It refrigerates well and reheats well, so it works for leftovers. I always love to have leftovers…makes lunch the next day, EASY!

The recipe is flexible. Love cheese? Or should I say Daiya? Load it up. Not so much…go skimpy. Same thing goes with a lot of the other ingredients.  I use these homemade tortillas in the recipe.

I like to top my piece with some dairy free sour cream, but it isn’t necessary. I guess adding some chopped tomatoes or avocado would work too (even though I haven’t tried that). Make it your own!
