I love casseroles. I know they aren’t for everyone, and that’s quite alright, I’ll take your share if it’s not! This recipe is a clean spin on a classic Mexican casserole. It’s simple, serves a small crowd, and can be made so many different ways. This is my favorite:
1/2 medium white onion, chopped 1 can organic black beans, no salt added, drained and rinsed 1 Tbsp Siete Taco Seasoning (I use Siete mild) 1 cup salsa (I use medium Rick's Salsa Co.) 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped Optional: 1 cup shredded cheese (omit for dairy-free) Optional Toppings: salsa (Rick’s or Yellowbird Organic Habanero), cilantro, jalapeño, avocado, tortilla chips (I use sea salt Siete), dairy-free Greek yogurt (I use Kite Hill)
