package (5 oz) salsa-style rice mix
cups shredded Mexican cheese blend (6 oz)

cups Muir Glen™ organic diced tomatoes (from 28-oz can), undrained
Heat oven to 425°F. Spray 1 1/2-quart casserole with cooking spray. In casserole, mix rice mix and 1/2 cup of the cheese.
In 1 1/2-quart saucepan, mix chili beans, tomatoes and water. Heat to boiling. Pour bean mixture over rice mixture in casserole; stir to mix.

If the Mexican-style cheese blend is not available, you can use Chedder or Monterey Jack.
