Rice 'n' Black Bean Bake Recipe

"When I come home from work, I start cooking rice for this meatless casserole right away," mentions Kathy Prado of Fort Worth, Texas. "The rest is a breeze, because it's just opening cans and mixing. That's my kind of cooking."

  • 2. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Serve with corn or tortilla chips. Yield: 6 main-dish or 8-10 side-dish servings.
