“This casserole is delicious comfort food. You could even use this as filling for a burrito. The recipe comes from Judith Finlayson's cookbook "125 Best Vegetarian Slow Cooker Recipes." If your slow cooker is new, you may have to adjust the cooking time. I've found that most of the new models cook faster than the originals.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and celery and cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add rice, salt, and pepper and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add soup and broth and stir until smooth. Stir in beans and transfer to slow cooker.
  2. Place 2 clean tea towels, each folded in half (so you have 4 layers), over top of stoneware, to absorb the accumulated moisture (I only had 2 towels with 2 layers, worked fine). Cover and cook on Low for 8 hours or on High for 4 hours, until hot and bubbling.
  3. Remove tea towels. Add jalapeno pepper, if using, green chilies, and cheese. Cover and cook on high for 20-30 minutes, until cheese is melted and mixture is hot and bubbling.
