Instructions

Preheat oven to 375°F; grease an 8-inch square baking dish. Lightly beat the eggs and then stir in the rice, scallions and ½-cup of salsa, mixing well. Press this mixture into the prepared baking pan. Rinse the bowl and then empty the beans into it, breaking them up a bit. Stir the remaining salsa into the beans and then spread the mixture over the rice in the baking dish. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the top, cover the pan with a lid or foil and bake 25 minutes. Remove the cover and return the dish to the oven for about 5-minutes, or until the cheese is melted and lightly browned.
