DIRECTIONS

  • Combine rice, water and seasonings in a saucepan, and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer for 35-40 minutes, or until tender. All the water might not be evaporated. Don't worry about this.
  • Remove from heat, and cool.
  • Place black beans and pinto beans into a colander or strainer, and rinse.
  • Transfer to a large bowl. Add corn, onion, spices and salsa, and toss to mix.
  • Mix in rice and cheese.
  • Fill quart-sized freezer bags with 3 cups of this mixture. That works best for our family of 5. Freeze.
  • Defrost and heat through before filling tacos or burritos. 1/2 cup serving per taco-sized tortilla works very well. Serve with sour cream and/or salsa, and fresh cilantro.
