Beans and rice are usually served separately in Mexico, but, occasionally the two are combined in delicious casseroles. This is quick and easy.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Lightly oil a 1-quart casserole or spray with a nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, combine rice, beans, and cheese. Mix well.

Pretty tasty. Made for a nice, fairly quick meal. I do admit that I used medium grain white rice instead of brown and used only 2 egg whites. The recipe has both 1 and 1 1/2 tsp chili powder listed, so I used the 1 1/2 which worked pretty well. I also added in some chopped pickled jalapeno for extra heat. Overall, good recipe! Thanks for posting!

Delicious! I LOVE brown rice and I've been trying to convert the hubby from white rice. This was delicious. I used Unfried Refried Beans for the beans and omitted the egg whites. Thanks will def make again. Made for ZWT 5:)

Yum! This was very good and easy. My favorite part of a Mexican meal is the rice & beans. I cook lots of brown rice at one time and freeze it in 1 cup bags. Doing that makes this recipe that much easier. Thanks for posting.
