Quinoa Skillet Casserole

This casserole is filled with quinoa and lots of fresh vegetables, inspired by the Southwest. 

Sharp Cheddar cheese adds flavor to the filling and creates a melted cheese layer on top.

Pinto Bean Enchilada Casserole

This slow-cooker meal is really comforting: tortillas, cheese, and sauce come together in a cozy casserole inspired by enchiladas.

The top tortilla layer becomes crispy in the slow cooker. We use pinto beans, but you can also use black beans if you prefer.

Creamy Lemon-Parmesan Chicken Casserole

This recipe for creamy chicken casserole has a tangy lemon and savory Parmesan cheese flavor.

It also has broccoli that is packed with vitamin C. Using whole-wheat orzo increases the amount of fiber in this healthy and comforting dinner.
