Hi all! How was your day? Today was such a good day in so many ways. My eyes are still 20/20 according to my doctor (yay!), I fit in a lunch time walk in our beautiful 80 degree weather and I had one delicious day. I whipped up this super tasty Vegetarian Bean Casserole for dinner versus stopping at Chipotle on my drive home – success!
My day started with an open faced Eggwich (1 slice Nature’s Own Butter Bread, 1/2 Tbsp whipped butterb a fried egg, Sriracha salt & pepper), plus half an orange.Since I had extra time before my eye appointment and they have holiday cups, I grabbed a tall nonfat cappuccino with caramel on top (2 sp).I probably should’ve ate my points versus drinking them because I was hungry late morning. I grabbed a banana and Trader Joe’s Lite Cheddar Stick before my walk (2 sp).
Post walk my lunch was so good even though the picture isn’t lol.

Saute for 2-3 minutes to soften.Add 1 Tbsp taco seasoning.Plus 3/4 cup water, 3 Tbsp tomato paste, beans (drained & rinsed), salt and pepper. Cook 2-3 minutes until slightly thickened.Build your casserole starting with 3 corn tortillas, then the bran mix, 3 more tortillas and cheese.Cover with aluminum foil and bake 20 minutes.You can broil for 2 minutes if you want crispy cheese.
Top with diced tomato, green onions and a salsa sour cream – Mexican Pizza Style.Each square is only 3 WWFreestyle Smartpoints so don’t be afraid of having two!
It makes me think of a cross between enchiladas and bean burritos. I totally had 2 squares.25 Daily WWFreestyle Smartpoints, 9K steps
