Chef Dad’s Ultimate Mexican Food Side Dish
When serving any type of meat or seafood as the entrée, this dish is a great compliment.  For more information go to www.chefdad.com

INGREDIENTS:
3 Cans of Pinto Beans (drained & rinsed)
1 Can of Rotel® Diced Tomatoes (found in the canned tomato section of your store)
16 oz. Cheddar/Jack cheese (shredded, divided in half)
1 Box Spanish Rice* (your favorite, cooked per package instructions)
½ Cup Salsa (your favorite)
1 tsp. Kosher Salt
1 tsp. Chili Powder
½ tsp. Black Pepper

COOKING:
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2) Combine beans, Rotel, ½ of your shredded cheese, cooked rice, salsa and spices in a large bowl and mix well.
3) Pour into a casserole dish then sprinkle remaining cheese over top.  Bake for 30 minutes.  Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Cooks Notes:* The brand of Spanish rice I use is made by Near East®.  Since this recipe will serve at least 6-8 people, you can easily cut this in half and only use 1 can of beans, half of the other ingredients, but use the entire box of rice and entire can of Rotele.
