Mexican or American Bean and Rice Dish

This dish is super easy, super quick, and versatile!
It has simple ingredients that can be put together pretty quickly in the following order.
3 to 4 cups Cooked brown rice (white could be used)
3 cans of chili beans with small amount of liquid (other beans could be used)
1 can of diced tomatoes, slightly drained (could use the ones seasoned with garlic, basil, and oregano if using a plain bean)
5 or 6 green onions, chopped (or purple onion or whatever you have on hand but green is super good!)
1 can or 1/2 bag of frozen corn
Top with 1/2 batch of thick cornbread and sprinkle with cheddar cheese if you like.
Bake for 25 mins or more on lower rack, in 9x13!
****(This recipe was from the net and I have adjusted some things to suit my family. Adjustments can suit it to your family and your budget as well. Leftovers and garden veggies can lower the cost. I made this for about $4! TIP: Use very little liquid!!!)
