You can use any kind of beans and any kind of cheese that you like. I used Anasazi beans and a mixture of cheddar and other cheeses. I think it was called the Mexican Blend or Taco Blend. I bought it already shredded. It is really better to grate your own because they use an anti-caking agent when they package it shredded.
1½ – 2 cups seasoned browned ground beef (about 1 lb raw)
1 – 1½ cups cooked Anasazi beans
8oz shredded cheese
1½ cup cooked brown rice
Homemade Pico de Gallo
Preheat oven to 350. Place rice in the bottom of a casserole dish. Mix beans, rice, and cheese together and place on top of rice. Bake uncovered for 10 minutes and then covered for about 20 minutes or until hot. Serve topped with homemade Pico de Gallo.
