Southwestern Rice and Three Bean Casserole





I made this recipe up in my head while at the grocery store.  I served this alongside the chicken sliders.  This was an excellent casserole.  If you wanted to serve it as a main dish the simple addition of rotisserie chicken would fit the bill perfectly.

1 package Knorr Chicken Rice cooked according to package directions
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 can chili beans with sauce
1 can Ranch beans with sauce
1 can Rotel tomatoes (your choice of flavor/heat level)
2 cups Mexican blend cheese, divided

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Lightly grease a medium sized casserole dish.  I used a 9 x 11 oval.

In a large bowl, combine all ingredients, but only ONE CUP of the cheese.

Spoon into the casserole dish and cover with foil.  Bake in oven about 30 minutes until the mixture is bubbling.  

Remove from the oven and top with remaining one cup cheese.  Put back into the oven for 5 minutes until the cheese melts and begins to brown slightly.  Let rest a few minutes before serving.
