This is one of my husband’s favorite dishes to cook on Sunday mornings.
This vegetarian dish is packed with protein with the eggs and black beans. The peppers and chilis are the perfect addition to this casserole.
It also keeps really well in the fridge. With five of us, we still have at least one day’s worth of leftovers. Its very filling so one or two pieces usually will quench the appetite.
