Brown Rice & Beans with Cheese & Chilies

Submitted by: CHRSTINAG

Introduction

Great slow cooker recipe that is filling as well as low in calories.  The only downfall is the sodium count, which I have not yet figured out how to diminish.  From "125 Best Vegetarian Slow Cooker Recipes" by Judith Finlayson.
