  (My own recipe, although not particularly innovative) Makes 2
  lunch-sized servings, approx 400-450 calories each
  
   Game plan:  Start rice.  While rice is cooking, prepare beans and
  salsa. Store for later, or assemble dish and eat. Detailed
  instructions:
  
   Cook rice as directed on package.  If no directions, rinse rice
  thoroughly, place in small pan with water and salt (optional). Heat
  on high until boiling, then reduce heat to simmer, cover, and cook
  for 40 minutes. Turn heat off, let rice sit for 5 minutes, remove
  cover and fluff with a fork.
  
   Empty black beans into microwaveable bowl.  Stir in spices (start
  with the smaller amounts, then increase to taste).  Bring beans to
  simmer in microwave. While rice cooks, let sit to blend flavors.
  
   Wash and chop tomatoes, mince onion.  Wash cilantro, strip leaves
  off, tear/crush the leaves and add them to the tomato and onion.
  Mix.  While rice cooks, let sit to blend flavors.
  
   Grate cheese.
  
   (At this point, everything may be placed in the refrigerator for
  later reheating, if desired.)
  
   Divide rice in half, and spread each half onto a medium-sized plate.
  Divide beans in half, and spread each half over the rice.  If rice and
  beans are cold (e.g., were in the 'fridge), heat in microwave before
  adding cheese. Sprinkle half of the grated cheese over each plate,
  return plate to microwave briefly (15-20 seconds) to melt the cheese.
  
   Top with salsa immediately before eating.
