South of the Border Pie

Recipe by Bec6206

From a vegetarian cookbook of mine. The beans, rice, eggs, and cheese provide the protein while chili powder and cumin provide the kick! Serve this with a simple tossed salad.

Very good, my significant other even asked for more. I reduced the fat and cholesterol to nearly zero by using skim milk, non-fat cheese and egg-beaters. The other thing I liked about this recipe is its flexibility to add additional ingredients ie; chopped jalapenos, white corn, green pepper etc. Well done.
