Monterey Beans and Cheese
15 mins (prep 5, cooking 10)
11 ingredients
4-6 servings
This is one of those recipes I turn to again and again when I don't feel like working too hard on dinner. I'm including the ingredients from the original recipe, though I always add corn, and never add the bacon or green pepper. It's great served over rice. From the More with Less Cookbook.
