This originally called for uncooked brown rice, but I used Lundberg Wild Rice blend, and it was awesome. It also called for 1 can stewed tomatoes and 1 can chopped mild chilies, but I wanted it to be less spicy.

1 medium onion, chopped
2 cup wild rice, uncooked
15 1/2 oz dark red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
