Farmer Franny

Food. Farm. Family.

I don’t know one person out there that wouldn’t use an easy dinner. Even in quarantine somehow our lives still become consumed with something. So here is an easy dump casserole that can totally be as last minute as you want. Plus! An easy clean-up.

Dump (I really don’t like this word) cans of chopped tomatoes, black beans, and corn. Combine with garlic powder, paprika, chili powder, red pepper and MOST importantly the TOMATO BOUILLON. Disclosure: this tomato bouillon may change your life. I use this for almost all Mexican food but most importantly Mexican red rice. TO. DIE. FOR.

Start layering like a lasagne. Start with the corn mix, add chicken, add cheese. Top that with tortillas and start again. Corn mix, chicken, cheese and tortillas.

Finish it off with cheese and ta-dah!!

Dish it out and fancy with some onion, sour cream, cilantro, or lettuce. Easy-peasy.

Hope you enjoy!!
