Food Storage Recipe - rice casserole

A friend of mine gave me this recipe about 22 years ago. I was newly single with a toddler and not much money and she was always giving me recipes that were low cost, healthy , and easy.

This one turned out to be one of my favorite and it is made with things that I always have on hand.

Rice Casserole ( that is always just what I called it)

1 can of chili beans ( DO NOT DRAIN !!)
some frozen broccoli ( I always get those small boxes of frozen chopped broccoli to use in this recipe and it is cheap!)
about a cup of instant rice
Velveeta cheese cut up into cubes ( I use the store brand cheese. I am too much of a tightwad to buy the Velveeta!)

Put all of this into a pyrex baking dish mixed well, cover with foil , and bake until the rice in tender.

That is it.

Easy and frugal!! LOVE IT!!

I did not have any instant rice last night so I had to cook up 1/2 a cup of rice to add to this.
