Santa Fe Beans and Rice
This recipe was quick, easy and made great leftovers. You could even put the filling in a tortilla and make a burrito to change it up.
2 cups brown rice, cooked
8 oz tomato sauce, low sodium
1/2 cup mild salsa
2 Tbsp taco seasoning mix, low sodium (or make your own)
15 oz can black beans, drained and rinsed
2 ears of corn, kernels removed (you can also use frozen corn instead)
1 cup Tofutti Dairy Free Sour Cream
1 1/2 cups reduced fat shredded cheddar cheese, divided (or Daiya dairy-free shredded cheese)
Preheat oven to 350. In a large bowl, combine cooked rice, tomato sauce, salsa, taco seasoning, black beans, corn, sour cream, and half of the cheese. Pour into a 2 quart baking dish (coated with cooking spray). Bake uncovered for 30 minutes. Sprinkle the top with the remaining cheese and bake for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
