This recipe is very easy and forgiving. You can do a lot with it to "make it your own".

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. In a skillet, cook onion, green pepper and celery in butter until onion is tender.
  2. Blend in rice, tomatoes, beans, seasonings and Worcestershire sauce.
  3. Cook slowly, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.
  4. Turn mixture into a greased casserole.
  5. Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes.
  6. **Sometimes I like to melt a little Monterey Jack or cheddar cheese on top during the last 5 minutes of cooking.
  7. Also, if my daughter isn't eating with us, I'll use Rotel instead of the tomatoes. I've even been known to add a dash or two of hot sauce!
  8. If you don't like black beans, use pinto beans or chili beans. The choice is yours.
  9. Of course meat eaters can add browned ground beef or chicken.
  10. Also, to make this a really easy meal I sometimes cook it on the stove in my large cast iron skillet and just pop it in the oven in that! Now that truly is a one-pot meal!
