Drain, and return to pan. Stir in chili powder, cumin, and salt. Add rice, tomatoes, and beans; cook over medium heat 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with cheese; cover and remove from heat. Let stand 1 minute or until cheese melts.

This was a super good, fast, and easy week night meal. My very picky 4, 5, and 7 yr olds loved it...they said it was "yummy" and I even served it burrito style on whole wheat tortillas. Definitely will be making it again!

This is extremely versatile. I used it for burritos twice and a taco salad. It goes a long way for 2 people!

Love this dish added a few things , like corn, more tomatoes, and salsa!!

My kids ask for this, and they hate everything!

Even my 11 year old son, who once lived on hot dogs & macaroni & cheese for an entire year. There are a million variations, too. Chicken, brown rice, black olives.... I halve the chili powder.
