What's Cooking Wednesday?

Cheesy Zucchini Skillet
Adapted from a recipe from Pinterest, here is the source:
What You Need:
-1 1/2 C Zucchini, we diced it but I think cutting it into half circles would work just as well!
-1/2 C diced pepper (we used a bag of mixed peppers but whatever your fancy)
-1/2 C diced onion (we used vidalia)
- 1 Can  (15oz) black beans
-1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes  with garlic
-3/4 C water
-1 tsp minced garlic
-1 C instant rice
-1 C Shredded Cheddar/ Cheddar jack cheese (you can use whatever you want for this, we just had this blend on hand, and used a cup because I love cheese!)

How to make it!
- Heat oil on a large skillet, add 1 tsp garlic, saute then add the veggies. Season, and saute for 5-7 minutes, then add beans and undrained tomatoes. Bring to a boil
-Add rice, stir till blended. Cover, remove from heat and let sit for 7 minutes to allow the liquid to absorbe. Sprinkle with cheese and enjoy!

How Was it?

A-mazing! We added a little sour cream to it, just because I love sour cream haha but it was so fantastic, and filling! We ended up with enough to serve 4 people, so we each had it for lunch the next day as well, and someone asked me about it saying how good it looks. Definetly give this a try, the 20 minutes it took to make didn't hurt either!
