Yikes! We lost an hour of sleep today. (Does anyone else have trouble adjusting?!) Easter is early this year. (I still haven’t taken down the Valentine’s Day decor!) And, school work and extracurricular activities take up every spare moment…life does not slow down in the teenage years (actually, time seems to speed up!)

My motto this year continues to be healthy recipes that are SIMPLE!

I’m sure it’s no surprise to my dedicated readers that my family fell in love with a Mexican twist to this cheesy casserole.

It’s the very first thing that came to mind as I was perusing the recipes because the main ingredients, corn, black beans and shredded cheese, are always on hand. It’s a good bet that there are plum tomatoes on the counter and cilantro struggling to grow outside.

Adding the extra protein turns Tex Mex Cheddar Corn Casserole into an Easy Prep/Hands-Off dinner option.
