"Invented" by my 13 year old son, this is a quick and easy throw-together meal. It's a full meal - protein, veggies and starch - all in one dish. If you like it spicy, add chopped jalapenos to the bean and corn step. This can also be assembled and frozen for OAMC.

I am going to have to remember this recipe when I need to cook for an army! I know it said eight servings, but man this made a ton of food! Overall, we really enjoyed this recipe. I didn't mash up the beans this time, but I might try doing that next time just to see the difference. It was a great combination of flavors and could be considered relatively healthy with all the veggies. We used reduced fat cheese and that seemed to work well. I will remember this recipe next time I need to cook for a large group. Thanks for submitting.

Definitely good! I used a 15 oz can of tomato sauce, 16 oz bag ofr corn and 28 oz can of diced tomatoes because that's what I had, so it overfilled the caserole a bit. It was an enjoyable meal, I'll probably do it up again. Very easy too.
