DIRECTIONS

  • Lime-Garlic Sauce: In a small saucepan, Melt butter slowly over medium heat OR briefly heat oil over medium heat.
  • Mix in cornstarch.
  • Gradually stir in milk.
  • Bring mixture to a boil, stirring constantly.
  • Boil for 1 minute and then remove from heat.
  • Stir in garlic and lime-juice to taste.
  • (I prefer a rather strongly flavored sauce as the flavor will be diluted when mixed into the casserole).
  • Casserole: Prepare rice, beans, and vegetables according to package directions, separately.
  • Divide sauce evenly between rice and vegetables.
  • Mix so that rice and vegetables are well-coated.
  • Spread rice evenly in bottom of 11 x 7 casserole.
  • Spread vegetables over rice.
  • Sprinkle 1/2 cup shredded cheddar over vegetables.
  • Spread beans over cheese.
  • Sprinkle remaining cheese over beans.
  • Cover and bake at 350°F until heated through and cheese is melted (15-20 minutes assuming that rice and beans are still warm).
