Mexican Casserole

Use leftover Chile Verde to make this! 

Mexican Casserole
3 c. cooked rice
1 can kidney beans, rinsed, drained
1/2 tsp cumin
sprinkling of garlic powder and onion powder
1 big can chile verde with pork (or 2 1/2 -3 c. homemade chile verde)
1 c. grated mozzarella (or other favorite cheese)

chopped tomato, bell pepper, and onion for garnish
sour cream

In a 2 qt. casserole dish, combine rice, beans and seasonings and stir together.  Spread chile verde over the top and cover with cheese.  Microwave on high for 9 minutes.  Serve with diced vegetables and sour cream.

Note: You can substitute any pepper you like for more heat.  I like to combine my diced tomatoes, onions and peppers in a bowl and serve like salsa over the top of each serving.  (Photo is topped with cheddar, instead of mozzarella.)
