  • 1
    Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • 2
    In a large bowl, heat the cream cheese in the microwave for 30-40 seconds or until softened. Mix in the taco seasoning, corn, beans, tomatoes, chiles, enchilada sauce, and cilantro. Stir to combine. Stir in the rice and 1/2 cup of each of the cheeses until fully combined. Set aside.
  • 3
    Spray a large baking dish with nonstick spray. I used a 10” round dish, but you can also use a 9 x 13.
  • 4
    Start by making a layer of the green peppers along the bottom of the dish. Top with half of the rice mixture, and use a spoon to smooth out as much as possible.
  • 5
    Layer in the red peppers and top with last half of the rice mixture. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup of each of the cheeses and sprinkle with more cilantro.
  • 6
    Bake for 30 minutes or until the cheese is bubbly and melted and the casserole is fully heated through.
  • 7
    Remove from the oven and top with more cilantro and diced tomatoes. Serve immediately.

    Enjoy!

Expert Tips

  • This is a vegetarian version, but it’s also delicious with meat added in! Add in some browned hamburger or rotisserie chicken (about 1 1/2 cups) for some extra flavor!
  • To make this dish a bit healthier, you can scale back on the cheese. You can leave the shredded cheese out all together, or just add a sprinkle on top, up to you!
