South of the Border Pie

What’s for dinner?

This is one of my favorite recipes for several reasons.  I almost always have all the ingredients on hand, my whole family will eat this meal, it’s nutritious and yummy!  It’s a win – win in my book.  That’s why I wanted to share it with you.


Start by cooking the onion and garlic in olive oil for about 5 minutes


Add the spices and cook for another minute.  This is what it looks like when I remove it from the heat.


Add kidney bean and brown rice and gently mix.


Add cheese and gently mix.


Add egg and milk (I mix these in a bowl before adding them).


Transfer to a lightly greased pie plate or quiche dish.

Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until the center is set.

Let stand 10 minutes before serving.


Enjoy with salsa, guacamole, bell peppers and sour cream.

I got this recipe from Cooking For Today by Better Homes and Gardens (Vegetarian Recipes).

1 15 oz red kidney beans, rinsed and draiined

1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice

1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (ours is cheddar without the coloring!)
