This is a recipe I concocted the other night, trying to find something tasty for my roommates. It's quick and easy, and more than certainly a crowd pleaser.

  3. In a skillet, melt 1 tbl of butter and add the garlic, onion, and mixed vegetables. Add salt and pepper and heat on med-high until vegetables are hot.
  4. In a saucepan, melt the other 1 tbl of butter and add salt and pepper. Stir in flour, and then slowly add the milk. Cook on med-high, stirring often until sauce begins to thicken. Add cream cheese and stir until smooth. Remove from heat.
  5. Drain black beans and add to the vegetables, stir.
  6. When rice is done, spread it over the bottom of a 9x12 glass pan. Spread the vegetable and bean mixture over the top. Layer salsa, then cream cheese sauce, then cheese on the top.
  7. Cover with foil and bake for 20-30 minutes. Serve!
