IntroductionThe protein from the black beans can make this side dish a main meal. You can also add diced chicken for a little extra protein punch!!! The protein from the black beans can make this side dish a main meal. You can also add diced chicken for a little extra protein punch!!!
2 C long grain brown rice, dry (uncooked)
32 oz box of chicken stock
15 oz. can of black beans, drained & rinsed
1C frozen corn
28 oz. can of petite diced tomatoes, drained & rinsed
4.5 oz can of green chiles
4.5 oz can of sliced black olives, drained
1 pkt of 40% less sodium taco seasoning
8 oz bag of reduced fat mexican cheese
I like to combine 4 oz of the cheese in with the ingredients and then top the dish with the other 4 oz and bake for about 10-15 minutes. This will melt the cheese perfectly and heat the frozen corn through & black beans.
Number of Servings: 12
