    Valeria's Note:

    I got this from a seasonal cookbook. Sometimes it's too early for fresh spinach, so I go for turnip greens. The tumeric adds a little flavor and gives the rice that yellow "Spanish rice" look. I like cooking this in my Dutch oven on a Sunday.

    1. 1
      In a saucepan, sauté 1 clove garlic (minced), onion, uncooked rice and ground tumeric in 1 tablespoon oil until onion is tender. Stir often.
    2. 2
      Add broth and mix well. Simmer, covered, until liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes for white rice, 40 minutes for brown rice. Remove from heat, let stand 5 minutes, fluff with fork.
    3. 3
      While rice cooks, heat 1 tablespoon oil in frypan on high heat. Add garlic and spinach, one handful at a time as it wilts, adding a little water as needed to prevent sticking. Spinach should be moist, with loose leaves, not clumped together.
    4. 4
      Mix black beans and chili powder in a bowl. Layer ingredients as follows in 2-quart casserole: half of spinach, all of the rice, all of the beans, remaining spinach.
    5. 5
      Sprinkle cheese on top. (At this point, casserole may be tightly covered and refrigerated until ready to bake.) Cover and bake at 375F until sizzling, 45 minutes. Or heat in microwave about 10 minutes then let stand 5 minutes. Serve by spooning into warm flour tortillas. Optional garnishes: salsa, avocados, guacamole, sour cream, Tabasco pepper sauce, chopped fresh cilantro, lime wedges.

      This was a great meal! I used two 10 oz. packages of spinach and it worked beautifully. Thanks so much for posting! :)
