Easy, make tonight, rice and beans recipe?

  1. Hubby wants rice and beans for dinner tonight-he think i can just throw a can of kidney beans on top of some rice and it will be good. I don't think so-LOL! I have never made rice and beans before-is there any easy way to do it with canned kidney beans and white rice?
  2. Well, we make this occasionally. Cook rice according to directions. Sauté a chopped green pepper and onion in a little oil. Add drained can of kidney beans. Add a little chicken broth or chicken bouillon to rice to give it some flavor. Combine everything together. We usually add sliced up skinless smoked sausage, too. You can probably find a better recipe if you google it.
  3. thanks ladies-I had a hard time finding things like this when I looked
  4. Goya rice and beans are sooooo good. I personally like them better than homemade. The black bean kind is my favorite, but they're all good...
  5. Theres a good recipe on the inside packet of Aidells cajun style andouille sausages, You can omitt the sausage if you want

  6. LadyJane, that looks really good! Thanks for sharing. Rice and beans is one of BF's favorite quick dinners. We saute a diced onion and diced green bell pepper, then we toss that into a pot with a 2 cans of Goya beans (we prefer black but kidney would work well too), some chili powder, and a little sugar. Simmer that for maybe 10 or 15 mins, mostly just until it's heated through, and then serve it over some rice. I cook the rice with a pinch of salt in it for flavor. Sometimes, we serve this with quesadillas on the side- if I'm really lazy I'll make those in the microwave. Thin slices of jack cheese in between two mini tortillas, on a plate, micro for about 30 or 45 seconds.
