Alright peeps, listen up.

Amy’s Kitchen is probably the best thing to ever happen to college students, in my opinion. You pop frozen, pre-prepared meals into the microwave for a few minutes and voila! A healthy, warm, homemade-tasting meal for you to enjoy. It’s a great way to cure homesickness for a little while.

One day, though, a terrible thing happened: my favorite Amy’s meal wasn’t available in our student market. *horror movie screams* I couldn’t stand for such a monstrosity, especially since I was really looking forward to it. And that lead me to create this SUPER easy recipe inspired by Amy’s Mexican Casserole.

  • Step 1

    Gather and prep all your ingredients. Here’s a neat little trick for dicing your onion perfectly. If you want to add meat, make sure it’s precooked before you add it into your mixture. I used this.

    Cook your onions and sausage together in a pan over medium high heat. Cook until the onions reduce, about 10-12 minutes.

    Add in your rice, beans, and corn. I got this part of my recipe already cooked from my cafeteria, so I re-heated it for about 5-7 minutes.

    Empty mixture into bowl. Crack your egg into the pan and cook over easy. (If you don’t know what that means, here. You’re welcome.)
