A naturally g-free recipe with mouth watering results. Subbing the salsa for fresh pico de gallo would make this even better!

riceIngredients

  • salt and pepper
  • 2 cups cooked rice (white, wild or brown)
  • 1 medium green pepper, chopped
  • 1 15 oz can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 jar salsa (your preference mild, medium or hot)
  • 2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
