In This Article

This vegetarian version of the comfort food tamale pie comes together quickly with canned beans and frozen bell peppers, onions and corn. If you don’t have frozen peppers and onions, use the same amount of fresh veggies and sauté them a bit longer until tender. The recipe is adaptable, you can substitute one can of beans with 8 ounces of cooked and drained ground beef or poultry if you like.

Bonus: Rinsing and draining canned beans before using them can eliminate up to 40% of the sodium they are normally processed with.

Active time: 20 minutes Total time: 40 minutes
