Today's Recipe Posted By Honeyone At The Message Board, thanks!

Beans and Jalapenos with Cheese

2 1/2 cups of water
1 cup long grained rice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped (about 3/4 cup)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
4 cups cooked red kidney beans ( I use chili beans )
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 cup shredded reduced-fat Monterey Jack cheese ( or your choice )

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Serves 6 maybe

1. In a medium saucepan, bring water to a boil over medium heat. Stir in rice. Reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes.

2. While rice is cooking, in a large skillet, heat oil over medium- high heat until medium hot. Add onion; cook, stirring constantly, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and jalapeno; cook, stirring, for 1--2 minute longer.

3. Add beans, cumin, and salt to skillet. Simmer until thickened, about 15 minutes. Stir in lemon juice. Spoon rice in a bowl, add the bean mixture on top bowl. Sprinkle cheese over top. This may be doubled with no problem.

A few hours later, Tee Jean's father came up to him and with anger in his voice asked, "Tee Jean, did you knock that outhouse into the bayou?" "Papa," the boy answered, "like George Washington, I cannot tell a lie. I did it...
