    olive oil (great value) 100% extra virgin olive oil cooki..., 1 serving (remove)
    White Rice, long grain, 4 cup (remove)
    Salsa, 1.25 cup (remove)
    *Green Chiles (Whole), 4 oz (remove)
    *Refried Beans, 1.5 cup (remove)
    Yellow Sweet Corn, Canned, 1 can (12 oz) yields (remove)
    *Cumin seed, 1 tbsp (remove)
    Chili powder, 1 tbsp (remove)
    Spinach, fresh, 3 cup (remove)
    Cheddar Cheese, .5 cup, shredded (remove)


Heat oven to 375 and coat 9 x 13 pan with cooking spray. Cook rice and mix 4 cups cooked rice with salsa. Put half the rice mixture along the bottom of the pan. Combine the beans with the corn, chiles and spices. Use a rubber spatula to spread on the beans on top of the rice mixture. Spread spinach on top of the beans - I used fresh but you can also use thawed, drained frozen spinach. Sprinkle half the cheese over the spinach, top with the rest of the rice mixture, then the rest of the cheese. Cook approximately 30 minutes or until cheese is bubbly.

  • White Rice turns into sugar, I would substitute brown rice and leave off the cheese. (gluten free, sugar free and lactose free) - 7/27/12
