Mexicali Casserole

1 cup raw rice
1 can, or one pound cooked kidney beans (or bean of choice), rinsed and drained
1 15 oz. can of corn, drained
1 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
1 diced onion
2 cups chicken broth
2 tsp. chili powder
1 tsp. ground cumin
salt & pepper to taste
cheese, optional

Mix all ingredients in large casserole and bake (at 350 degrees), covered, for 1 hour or until rice is done.

Note: Can top with cheese the last five minutes of cooking or serve cheese as a topping when serving. I tend to not add cheese because I'm watching my weight, but my kids and husband like it, so I serve it on the side.
