 we like brown rice, but you can use white
 instead....I have even used ham and
 crumbled ground beef if you happen to have it on hand.
 Layer in a 9x13 baking dish the cooked rice. In another bowl, mix taco
 seasoning and tomato sauce. Add shredded chicken and coat it well with
 tomato mixture. Layer this chicken mixture on the rice in pan. “Frost”
 the chicken layer with the refried beans. It may take up to 2 cans for
 that, especially if you want a good thick layer. Top off with grated
 cheese.
 Wrap for freezing and pop it into the freezer.  When ready to bake, thaw
 and bake uncovered for 30 to 45 minutes or until hot all the way through
 and the cheese is nice and bubbly. Enjoy!
 
 I love hearing about all of wonderful things you are all freezing. Thanks
 for the tip on coating your tin foil with cooking spray before you wrap
 your food with it for freezing. I was having trouble with cheese sticking
 to the foil when I unwrapped it for baking. I have given it a try and it
 does help. Thanks
 I would like to share my recipe for chicken-taco casserole....
 I just throw in these ingredients, so there is little measuring....... so
 the recipe is not exactly accurate. Make a small batch to try it and see
 if you like it and then make several. These have frozen well and taste
 great when thawed and cooked. It is so easy and rather inexpensive.
