Step 1

In 12” skillet, bring 2 cups water to boil. Add contents of yellow rice mix and olive oil; stir to combine. Boil 30 seconds. Reduce heat to medium low. Simmer, covered until rice is tender and water is absorbed, about 25 minutes.

Step 2

After 20 minutes, stir in mixed vegetables, black beans and garlic; cover and cook for remaining 5 minutes.

Step 3

Remove skillet from heat; stir in cheese. Let skillet sit, covered, until cheese is melted, about 5 minutes more. Serve warm and top with chopped parsley or cilantro.
