Our newspaper had a section "taste of home" that had some great recipes I thought I would add to the blog. Let me know what you think of this one.
SPICY RICE, BEAN & CHEESE SKILLET

3 cloves garlic, minced
1 Tbsp. olive oil

1 can (15 oz.) black beans, drained, rinsed
1 1/4 cups water
2 cups Minute Brown Rice, uncooked
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
1 cup low-fat Colby and Monterey Jack cheese, shredded

Stir in rice. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover. Simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
Stir in cilantro; top with cheese. Let stand, covered, 5 minutes.

If you would like this as a main dish you can add cooked diced chicken.
