Mexican Bean and Rice Casserole

Again another recipe that I just threw together from leftovers. I had made bean and cheese burritos and had leftover bean and cheese mixture that I didn't want to go to waste.

Bean and cheese mixture- 2 cans of pinto beans (or two cups cooked dried pinto beans), one half onion chopped, 1 1/2 cups cheese, one can green chilies

1 1/2 cups cooked brown rice

one half chopped onion

about 2 cups salsa

about 1 cup shredded cheese

I placed a layer of salsa on the bottom of a small cooking pan (I think it was 8x8) and then spread the rice over the top. I put another layer of salsa on top of the rice than spread the bean and cheese mixture over and some more salsa on top of the bean and cheese. I sprinkled the chopped onion and cheese on top. Cook for 30-45 minutes at 350 degrees, its done when heated all the way and the top cheese is melted.

I served this with flour tortillas that I heated on the stove.
