Southwest Hotdish

Here is a quick easy recipe that can be eaten the same day or frozen and reheated for another day.
What you need:
  • 1 can black beans
  • 1 c cooked rice (I have used brown or white rice)
  • 1 lb. ground beef or turkey (cooked)
  • 1-2 c salsa
  • 1 c frozen or 1 can drained corn
  • shredded cheese and olives (if you like them) for the topping
Cook the beef or turkey and rice then combine with the other ingredients (except cheese and olives) in a 2qt covered casserole dish.
Bake 350 about 30-45 min.  Uncover the last 10 min. and add the cheese and olives, bake until topping is melted.  

If we  have left overs, I freeze them in single serve containers and they reheat well, or you could skip the baking step if you freeze the whole thing and then bake later.

This can also be served in a tortilla (like a burrito- I have to give my husband credit for that suggestion- the kids loved it!)
