Cilantro Bean Casserole

I am re-vitalized, rejuvenated, whatever you want to call it. So, my goal for this blog is to start updating with a new recipe once a week. That's all I can commit to right now. But, we had something delicious last night that was an invention of mine a while back, and we tweaked it again, and I'm in love. It's so delicious. The beauty of this dish too is that if there is an ingredient that you don't like, just leave it out and it will probably still taste devine!

Here are the ingredients:

1 can corn, drain juice
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
1 bunch of cilantro (you can't leave this one out!! sorry!!)
Juice of one lime
2 green onions finely chopped
3 roma tomatoes chopped
1 garlic clove minced
1 small avocado, diced
3-8 oz of monterey jack cheese cut into small cubes
Salt to taste
**Serve with fresh diced jalapenos on the side for those that like the heat!

That's it! Super easy.

Possible ideas to change it up: Add some Quinoa. I'm going to try this soon. Add some tortilla strips on top.
