Burrito Casserole

What you need: 

4 servings instant rice
1 can vegetarian refried beans
1 can diced tomatoes
1 small onion
2-3 cloves garlic
1 green pepper
1 4oz can crushed chilies (optional)
vegan soy cheese, shredded
3-4 flour tortillas
salt, pepper and spices to taste

What you do: 

Cook rice to box specifications and heat oven to 350.
Sautee the onion, garlic and green pepper in some olive oil. Tear up tortillas into large 4 inch (or so) sized chunks and place on bottom of baking dish. (I use a round 11 inch, 6 cup volume dish)
Spread beans onto tortillas. In a separate bowl mix the cooked rice with some soy cheese, the can of tomatoes and the sauteed onion/garlic/green pepper. If you want an extra kick add the chilies. Add salt and pepper while mixing- I also add a little oregano.
Spread this mixture over the beans. Top with more soy cheese. Bake approximately 20 minutes.

SO HOW'D IT GO?

I made this for my family last night.  It was pretty tasty.  I went ahead and added olives to the rice mixture, and I didn't have any chilis, so I just added a few drops of tobasco to the tomatoes before mixing them in.  The only thing I didn't care for was how hard the tortillas at the bottom got.  They were tough, as if they had been microwaved.  Next time I make this, I'll spread some refried beans on the bottom of the dish before putting down the tortila pieces to add more moisture.  But overall, I loved this recipe.  I think all-in-one meals are some of the best!  Thanks for the recipe!
