Enjoying a meal with loved ones at the end of the day is a timeless tradition, but many families feel as though they're constantly searching for ways to mix up the menu.
One trend gaining traction among home chefs is "meatless Mondays" in which classic dishes are made using substitutions for meat like veggies or grains. It's a simple way to maintain nutritional value at the dinner table while putting a tasty twist on worn-out meals.
This Meatless Cheesy Burrito Bake can provide your family a flavorful way to skip the meat and make way for protein in the form of brown rice paired with bell peppers, onion and refried beans wrapped in wheat tortillas and topped with cheese, salsa and guacamole.
