Spicy Rice, Bean and Cheese Skillet

Here is a great South Western Rice dish that goes well with all kinds of main dishes. You can substitute the minute rice for regular if you prefer but the rice cooking time will need to change.


  • 1.5C Green Bell Peppers, chopped
  • 3 Cloves Garlic
  • 1Tbsp Olive oil
  • 1 can (10oz) diced tomatoes and green chilies, undrained
  • 1 can (15oz) black beans, drained, rinsed
  • 1.25C water
  • 2C minute brown rice, uncooked
  • .25C cilantro, chopped
  • 1C low-fat shredded Colby and Monterey Jack cheese

In large skillet stir in green peppers and garlic in hot oil on medium high heat (1 minute). Add tomatoes,beans and water; mix well. Bring to a boil and then stir in rice. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover. Remove from heat, stir in cilantro, and top with cheese. Let stand, cover for 5 more minutes and its done.
