Cheesy Rice and Bean Skillet

Cheesy Rice and Bean Skillet- this one skillet cheesy rice and beans recipe makes a great quick and easy weeknight meal! It’s flavorful, filling, and so delicious. Serve tortilla chips on the side!

Whenever I am in the mood for Mexican flavors, but need an EASY meal, I make this Cheesy Rice and Bean Skillet.

It is made with rice, beans, salsa verde, onion, cilantro, lime, and plenty of cheese! Everything comes together in ONE pan! The flavors are bold and the dish is very satisfying.

I like to top the cheesy skillet with avocado, cilantro, and green onions for extra flavor and color. And I highly recommend serving tortilla chips on the side for dipping!

Kids and adults LOVE this easy rice and beans recipe! It is a dinner favorite!
