  • Santa Fe Beans & Rice

    * 2 c. cooked white rice
    * 1 15 oz. can or 2 c. cooked black beans
    * 1 c. frozen corn or 8 oz. can sweet corn kernels
    * 1 10 oz. can Rotel tomatoes with chilies
    * 1 c. salsa
    * 1 c. lowfat sour cream
    * 2 c. shredded Mexican cheese blend
    * 1 small red or white onion, sliced or diced, your choice
    * 1 small can sliced black olives (or more if that's your preference)

    Preheat oven to 350°. IN a large bowl, combine drained beans, corn, tomatoes, salsa, sour cream, 1 c. cheese, and cooked rice. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a greased 2 quart baking dish and top with onions and olives. Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining 1 cup cheese and bake 5 to 10 minutes longer until cheese is melted. I served mine with homemade tortilla chips.
