Beefy Lima Bean Casserole #SundaySupper

Beefy Lima Bean Casserole

Beefy Lima Bean Casserole pairs tender baby lima beans with lean ground beef and brown rice. This tasty casserole dishes up the beans for this week’s Beantastic Sunday Supper Event hosted by Tammi of Momma’s Meals !
I love beans of all kinds from green string beans to black-eyed peas. Even though sometimes beans don’t like me back. If you know what I mean. 😉
Beans are high in fiber, protein and B-Vitamins.
One of the great things about dried beans is that those are pretty much, interchangeable in recipes. Each variety brings something different to the table or cook-pot so-to-speak.
I chose limas for this dish, simply because I was hungry for those beans. Chickpeas, navy, northern, pinto, black or many other kinds would work as well. This casserole tastes great without the beef too!

    No way I’d leave the beef out of this casserole. It makes it a complete meal and only needs a glass of wine to go with it.
