A low fat, high fiber hearty meal.



  1. Cook 1 cup of dry rice ahead of time (yields about 2 cups cooked). Open can of beans into colander, rinse and let drain.
  2. Brown chicken (or turkey) in non-stick skillet with a little cooking spray to stop from sticking.
  3. When browned, put in med-large mixing bowl. (You can put some of the chili powder, garlic, seasoned salt and pepper on the meat.)
  4. In same pan, spray with more cooking spray, add onion and cook until almost translucent, then add zucchini, mushrooms and frozen corn.
  5. Cook until tender. Add to bowl with meat.
  6. Also in bowl, add cooked rice, canned tomatoes, black beans, cilantro, and other seasonings.
  7. Mix well and put into casserole dish or small cake pan. Sprinkle cheese on top. Bake at 350 °F (175 °C) for 1/2 hour or until hot.
  8. Note: freezes well in containers or freezer bags.

I used half the cilantro called for and there was still too much. I also used half of the chili powder. I've never heard of rice cheese but one ounce of cheese for an entire casserole? I used about a cup of low fat cheddar. I will continue to modify the recipe and use it because I think it has great potential. Thanks for submitting it.
