      1 cup uncooked brown rice
      1 (16 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
      1 large onion, chopped
      1 tablespoon canola oil
      1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chilies, undrained
      2 teaspoons chili powder
      1/4 teaspoon salt
      1 1/4 cups shredded reduced-fat Cheddar cheese, divided

      Cook rice according to package directions. Transfer to a bowl; add the beans. In a nonstick skillet, saute onion in oil for 4-5 minutes.

      Stir in the tomatoes, chili powder and salt. Bring to a boil; remove from the heat.

      In a 2-qt. baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray, layer a third of the rice mixture, cheese and tomato mixture. Repeat layers.

      Top with remaining rice mixture and tomato mixture.

      Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes or until heated through.

      Uncover; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake 5-10 minutes longer or until cheese is melted.
