We had a BBQ this weekend and had a ton of left over grilled burgers. I was looking for a recipe to use some the meat. I crumbled the burgers and made recipe as directed topped with cheddar cheese. I did not bake, I simply simmered over med heat. Turned out great!
I made this on the stove top with both white corn and garbanzos fully drained. After reading the reviews re being watery I decided to not put any water in it. Rather than the 15 oz can of tomato sauce, I added a 15 oz can of diced tomatoes and a 6 oz can of sauce after I let all the liquids simmer out. Then turned it down very low for about 1/2 hour and added a pinch of beau monde and a few drops of Magi to add some depth and richness. Came out very good. Served it along side some rice cooked with beef broth. Everyone loved it.
Quick, easy and delicious. Will definitely make again.
Quick, easy, delish, and healthy! If you enjoy spice, I recommend doubling the cumin, an adding 1/2 tsp cayenne! I agree with other users who pass on adding extra water:)
Wonderful meal! Warm and Very Filling! Thank You for Sharing!
What a fabulous dish. I used lean ground beef and 2 cans of garbanzo beans. Next time I am going to experiment with corn and kidney beans. Very flavorful yet healthy dish. Thanks for the recipe!
What a great dish! Fast and delicious! Love recipes with the added bonus of chickpeas!! ;) Used a little more tomato sauce and added some Tabasco. Thanks for sharing! :)
My husband and my 2 and 5 years old loved it. I wasn't expecting it to be good because there are so many 3 stars review but was I surprised. I don't find that it lacks flavour at all. I did not bake it in the oven, I cooked it right on the stove. Use 1 can of beans and 1 can of corn, undrained. My family loved it so much that they asked me to make it again. Serve with brown rice, really filling.
I hate to admit that I didn't have high hopes for this recipe, as I'm not a casserole girl. But, we absolutely loved it. I had 1 can of garbanzo beans to use up (hoping to find a way to sneak them by DH & DS) & this recipe was perfect. Everything else is always on hand & it went together very quickly. I used one can of white corn & served it over rice. As I was putting the beef mixture into a casserole dish I envisioned it topped with mashed potatoes that were lightly broiled at the end of baking.... & then at dinner when I told the family of my daydream they got into the action & came up with a version that would be wrapped in flour tortillas with or without rice & one with pasta instead of rice. I think this is going to be a versatile & very quick go-to meal for busy weeknights. I couldn't be more pleased that I tried this one. UPDATE: Freezes very well. Would definitely recommend for OAMC. Even my picky toddler ate it! Thanks so much for posting, Angela!
A very nice dish quite reminiscent of chili without the "oomph".
