This is a budget meal that that can be very quick to make or you can use if as a way to use leftover chili and beans. It has all sorts of possibilities. You could use chicken and even fish instead of the ground beef. The flavors would go well with just about any type of meat. You could also skip the meal and go vegetarian and still have a great balanced meal. This meal already has one vegetable because of the beans so you I suggest serving with a salad.

I made this earlier this week after work and it took 20 minutes because I cooked the rice. You could use an instant rice or boil in the bag rice.to make it even quicker.

Ingredients:

Rice (make white or wheat rice for 4 to 6 people
cilantro , fresh
1 bag corn chips
5 to 6 cups of chili and beans (canned, frozen or home made.
10 oz to 1 pound of cheese (jack ,cheddar is what I suggest)
1 pound ground beef ( or any type of meat)
Sour Cream
Peppers
olives

Place some corn chips on a pate of large bowl.
Add 1/2 to 1 cup of rice on top.
Add the chili and beans on top
Add the cheese shredded.
Top with sour cream, olives, cilintro , chili peppers, shredded lettuce or cabbage if desired.

Enjoy!.
