I was looking for something quick, tasty, and nutritious to make tonight...with ingredients I had on hand and this absolutely fit the bill!! I did have to change things up quite a bit, but it was a great jumping off point...something I probably never would have come up with. I cooked the beans seperatley on the stove top: 1 can of beans a little over 1/4 tsp chili powder, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 1/8 tsp sugar, and a dash of cumin....simmered this for about 15 minutes while the rice cooked (cooked seperatley as well). After the rice was done, I mixed in a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies (no stewed tom's on hand), garlic powder, and beans (I didn't use any onion because I didn't have any). So good! And SO flavorful (for those of you complaining about no flavor!)...and the best part about it, these are all ingredients I will ALWAYS have on my shelf, and I don't have to worry about the freshness of ingredients...this is KEY when you're a working college student like myself!! I KNOW this will become a ritual when I can't afford groceries! Cheap to make, as well!! Thanks so much for the idea!!
