Preheat oven to 350. Put 2 cups white rice into large casserole dish. Add 4 cups water and a tablespoon of butter and a tsp of salt. Put lid on dish and place in oven. Open two large cans of Bush's Country Style baked beans. Place in another casserole dish and add to oven, no cover. Bake both for 30 minutes or until water is absorbed into the rice. (I use a clear casserole dish for this.) Layer rice, beans and cheddar cheese in bowls and enjoy!
This is one of my family's favorite meals, costs about $4, and is super easy!
