This is originally from a co-worker of my mom's, but has become a family recipie.

1 pkg Vigo Black beans and rice
water according to package of beans
1 15 oz can peeled, diced, no salt added tomatoes, drained (reserving a little of the liquid)
1 lb ground turkey
1/2 pkg low sodium taco seasoning
2 cups shredded cheese, plus some to serve on side(we usually use the taco blend or mild cheddar)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cook beans and rice mixture according to package directions. Meanwhile, brown up turkey. When almost done, drain and add taco seasoning. When rice is done, add tomatoes and reserved liquid, and also the meat. Spray with non-stick spray a casserole dish. Transfer mixture to the dish. (if making this for the next night stop here) Bake in oven for 20 minutes (if coming from refrigerator, bake for 30 minutes). Top with as much cheese it takes to cover top. Put back into oven to melt cheese for 10 mintues. This is pretty much a mexican chili so serve with crackers or corn bread (I usually use Jiffy or I would post a recipie) and extra cheese. Mmmm, mmmm, good! Serves 4
