  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for the pan
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1 medium yellow pepper, cored, seeded, and diced
  • 1 medium green pepper, cored, seeded, and diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 package lentils, cooked to package directions
  • 2 cups quinoa, cooked to package directions
  • 2 tablespoons Muir Glen Tomato Paste
  • Taco seasoning, to taste
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can Muir Glen Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes with Chipotle Peppers
  • 1 1/ 2 cups mild cheddar cheese, shredded
  • Sour cream, for serving
  • Green onion, thinly sliced, for serving
  • Tortilla chips, for serving


  • Step 1

    Arrange a rack in the middle of the oven and heat the oven to 375 °F. Coat a 9x13-inch baking dish with oil and set aside.

  • Step 2

    Heat the olive oil in a large, high-sided skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the onion, peppers, and garlic and cook, stirring regularly, until softened, about 8 minutes. Add the lentils and quinoa and cook until fragrant, about 4 minutes. Add 1/2 cup water, Muir Glen Tomato Paste and taco seasoning and stir to combine. Cook, stirring regularly until the tomato paste is incorporated and the mixture is simmering, about 2 minutes.

  • Step 3

    Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the Muir Glen Fire Roasted Diced Tomatoes with Chipotle Peppers and 3/4 cup of the cheese. Transfer the mixture to the prepared baking dish and spread into an even layer. Sprinkle with the remaining 3/4 cup cheese.

  • Step 4

    Bake until the cheese is melted and casserole is heated through, about 15 minutes. Let sit for 5 minutes before serving. Top the casserole with green onions or cilantro, you can scoop the casserole into individual bowls and top with sour cream or set out the casserole as a dip for tortilla chips. *Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
