I went to my farmer's market today and scored some super amazing non-GMO corn (among other things). I wanted to make something with it but couldn't think of anything spectacular and just wound up grabbing things and throwing them in a frying pan. This is what I ended up with and it's actually delish. I am calling it 'skinny' because there is only about a 1/3 cup of cheese in it and other than that it's vegetarian. But it also has jasmine rice which is just useless carbs so it's only 'maybe' skinny. It's only called Corn and Pepper casserole because those were my two favorite ingredients. So there you have it. All of my ingredients were organic except the rice.
2 cobs of corn
1 large poblano pepper
1 small onion, chopped
2 diced garlic cloves
1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes, drained
1 can kidney beans
1 cup cooked rice (any type, I'm gonna try this again with black rice!)
1/4 tsp of each: chili powder, cumin, celery salt, garlic powder, onion powder.
About ten twists of my black pepper grinder.
I boiled my corn for about 12 minutes or so and then sliced it off the cob. In a frying pan I sauteed the garlic and onions in olive oil about 5 min, then added the sliced poblano, drained tomatoes, kidney beans and corn. I added all seasoning and sauteed about ten minutes. In the casserole dish I mixed all of this good stuff with my rice and topped with my 1/3 cup grated cheese. That's it. I baked it at 375 for about 20 min. It was super simple and pretty delicious!
