Make sure to REPIN the recipe 🙂

I made this dish at my parents house – my dad called me the next day and told me how much they loved it!!! I know they will be making it again since it is SO easy to make 🙂

I really like this dish because it reminds me of the rice skillet meals I use to come up with as a kid – I would cook dinner for the family and I would through a bunch of veggies and rice in a skillet – usually followed with a bit of soy sauce and seasoning

We would serve it with a salad and dinner would be done

I really hope you enjoy this recipe – I really love how the pictures came out – do not worry the recipe is not too spicy

This is everything you will need – I love the fact that there is tons of protein in the dish due to the cheese and black beans so you are not going to miss not having meat in the dish — feel free to add a pound of cooked ground turkey or beef if you would like 🙂

How GOOD does that melted cheese look ?!!! Seriously melted cheese might be my favorite thing in the world – except for caffeine. Melted cheese and caffeine are my two favorite things ( maybe someday I will figure out a way to combine the two — just kidding)
