Bean, Cheese, and Rice Squares

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by CraftScout

This was a yummy meatless meal I found at Hillbilly Housewife. It set up beautifully in the oven, and got 2 thumbs up all around the table from DH and both kids. I added the corn, and thinks it really helped the flavor and consistency, in addition to adding some non-beany vegetables. I think that you could also add a can of diced tomatoes (mostly drained), a can of green chiles, fresh veggies of any kind, and of course add complimentary seasonings. If you are vegetarian, or cooking this for someone who is, either omit the worcestershire sauce, or make sure it is one of the vegetarian varieties - most are made with anchovies.

I really liked this! I used brown rice and substituted a 10 oz pkg of frozen spinach, thawed and drained, for the corn to lower the carbs. Sliced into squares and froze individual portion sizes for my lunch.
