1 cup uncooked instant rice
1 can black beans rinsed and drained
1 can corn, drained
1 (1oz) packet ranch salad dressing and seasoning mix
3/4 cup diced Monterrey jack cheese ( I used shredded because that is what I had)
1/2 cup seeded, diced tomatoes
1/4 cup sliced green onions
handful chopped cilantro
1. Cook rice according to package. During last 5 minutes of cooking quickly uncover and add beans and corn. Cover immediately.
2. When rice is done, remove from heat and add seasoning mix and stir. Let stand 5 minutes then stir in cheese, tomato, onions and cilantro. Serve immediately.
* This is a very low-fat dish but for a little healthier you can use instant brown rice.... you can't even tell the difference!
