Gluten Free and Dairy Free Mexican Style Casserole

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

I HAD to share my meal prep for this week. It was so delicious, I ate it faster than I could take a picture. I used this existing recipe I found on Pinterest but modified it to be gluten free, dairy free, and fit my dietary needs.

You will need:

  • 1 lb. ground beef (this time I used 85/15, but I usually use 90/10)
  • 1 green pepper diced
  • 1 orange pepper diced
  • 1 red pepper diced
  • 1 bag of Daiya Dairy Free Mexican blend cheese
  • Trader Joe’s Chili Lime Seasoning
  • 1 cup of rice (uncooked)

I followed the recipe tagged above, but these are the steps I took:

  1. Heat oven to 375ºF.
  2. Brown meat in large nonstick skillet; drain. Return meat to skillet.
  3. Reserve 1 cup cheese for later use. Add remaining cheese and all remaining ingredients to meat; mix well.
  4. Spoon into 13×9-inch baking dish sprayed with cooking spray; cover.
  5. Bake 40 to 50 min. or until rice is tender. Top with reserved cheese; bake, uncovered, 5 min. or until melted.

I got about 4 meals out of this dish, perfect for the week and so easy to make.

Comment below if you make it, and let me know what you think.
