Brown Rice & Chicken Enchilada Casserole

New Year, New You, am I right? I hate that phrase. I LOATHE it. It's the same catchphrase that gets used incessantly over the holiday break and it drives me nuts. Sometimes, though, it makes sense.

It is a bunch of less-than-stellar ingredients… Continue reading Fully Loaded Cheesy Green Bean Casserole
