Cheesy Bean and Kale Bake

Prep time: 30 minutes Serves: 6


The classic casserole gets a modern twist with this simple yet delicious gluten free recipe. From stovetop to oven, all you need is one pan and less than 30 minutes to whip up a nutritious dinner.


1 tablespoon olive oil
3 garlic cloves, minced
½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
8 ounces kale, torn and tough ribs removed
¼ cup water
2 (15 ounces) no-salt added Great Northern beans or cannellini beans, drained and rinsed*
¾ cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup crushed Tostitos® Original Tortilla Chips (4 ounces or 28 chips)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

In a large (11 or 12-inch) ovenproof skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and red pepper flakes, sauté 1 minute. Mix in kale and water; sauté 3 – 4 minutes or until kale starts to wilt a bit. Turn off heat.

Mix in beans, ricotta, half of the Parmesan cheese (1/6 cup) and half of the crushed Tostitos® Original Restaurant Style tortilla chips. (1/2 cup.) Bake in oven for 15 minutes.

In a small bowl, mix together remaining parmesan cheese and crushed Tostitos® Original Restaurant Style tortilla chips. Sprinkle over top of casserole and cook for another 10 minutes. Serve warm.

*If you can’t find no-salt added canned beans, use regular canned beans. Drain and rinse thoroughly with water.
