  • 1 can (14 to 15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped onion
  • 4 cups frozen shredded hash brown potatoes
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 1-1/2 cups shredded reduced-fat Mexican cheese blend
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 can (12 ounces) fat-free evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  • Ideal slow cooker size: 5- to 6-Quart.
  • Grease the inside of your slow cooker insert.
  • In a large bowl, combine the black beans, bell pepper, onion, potatoes, corn, cheese and cilantro. Stir well and then dump in the slow cooker.
  • In the same bowl beat together the eggs, milk, salt and cayenne pepper. Pour mixture over the potato mixture in the slow cooker.
  • Cover and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.
  • When you're ready to cook the casserole, transfer the insert to the slow cooker base.
  • Cover and cook on LOW for 3 to 5 hours, or until eggs are set and the edges are browned.
  • Uncover, being careful not to let the condensation in the lid drip back into the slow cooker. Turn off the slow cooker and let the casserole sit, uncovered, for 15 minutes before serving.
  • Cut into wedges.
