  • 1 cup canned pinto beans drained and rinsed
  • 1-2 cups Mexican blend cheese Monterrey jack cheese or dairy free alternative, shredded
  • 1/2 -1 yellow orange or green pepper, seeded and diced (yellow or orange just make it more colorful)
  • 1 to mato or approx 15 cherry or grape tomatoes seeded and diced (I like to cut these first, sprinkle with salt and let sit to release their water as I prep the other veggies and beans)
  • 1 bunch scallions green parts chopped
  • 1/2 red onion diced
  • 1/4 -1/2 bunch cilantro finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeño seeded and sliced for topping (optional) (if you love jalapenos, add them in before baking)
