Ingredients

    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

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a 2 qt saucepan add rice and chicken stock. Bring to a boil and simmer for about 10 minutes or until the rice has absorbed all the stock. Meanwhile, grease a 9x13 baking dish. When the rice is finished combine all remaining ingredients except the cheese in the greased baking dish.

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.

Enjoy!
