    -Sylvie-'s Note:

    Great way to use up leftover rice. I adopted this recipe from Recipezaar as it didn't have a loving home. I haven't had a chance to make it myself yet, but thought it sounded quick, simple and tasty. If you beat me to it, please let me know what you think!

      With a few changes, this will be a keeper for leftovers. It needs 16 ounces of salsa and 1 teaspoon each of cumin and chili powder. I used leftover chicken and leftover brown rice. I think regular canned corn would work. I left out the cheese.

      I love everything about this recipe! Chicken, black beans, corn, rice and cheese are a great combination, always!! I think this would be great filling in a tortilla. In fact, that's what I'm going to do with the leftovers! I used blackened chicken and a comination of brown and white rice. The only change I would make is to not drain all the sauce off the beans. With the thickness of the rice, the liquid of the beans might give it a little better consistency. Otherwise, this is an A+++ recipe!
