Chili Bean and Rice Bake (serves 4)
This is a very easy one dish meal for those days when you need to be out till dinnertime and can leave a casserole in the oven on a delay bake cycle. A two-cup serving is only 328 calories and provides 15 grams of protein and only 5 grams of fat. Serve with a tossed salad for a complete and healthy meal! ~ Glyn and Will
