Colorado Casserole

One of my recipes is frequently requested, so I thought I would post it here. It is highly nutritious, fairly easy to make, and even those who don't normally enjoy vegetables seem to love this dish! Try it and let me know what you think!


2 cooked chicken breasts (I usually boil or grill)
8 oz cooked sausage (I prefer mild italian sausage)
1 can red or kidney beans
1 can black beans
1 can diced tomatoes (I prefer the italian variety)
1 lb. asparagus, chopped into bite-size pieces and steamed
1/2 cup green onions or chives
1/4 tsp savory (I rarely use this in mine)
1/4 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp Tabasco (more if you like some kick)
1 cup chicken broth
3 cups cooked brown rice
1/2 cup sliced almonds

Preheat the oven to 375. Cut the chicken and sausage into bite-sizes pieces. Mix the first 11 ingredients together well. Grease a casserole dish, and pour the cooked rice into the bottom. Cover the rice with the vegetable mixture. Sprinkle the almonds on top of the mixture. Bake for about 20 minutes or until the broth is bubbling. This dish easily serves 6 adults. Enjoy!
