    That sounds more like a "Beans and Rice" recipe, rather than Spanish Rice, so you might change your search parameter.

    I couldn't find a single rice recipe in the database that calls for both black beans and chick peas, never mind a third bean. icon_confused.gif

    None of these call for 3 types of beans, but they do have chickpeas (garbanzo beans), black beans and rice ~

    Is it possible that you may have combined two different Spanish rice recipes or maybe added the additional beans (garbanzos and "another bean") to a Spanish rice and black bean recipe?

    This Spanish rice recipe makes about 6-8 servings

    2-4 Tbs olive oil
    1 medium onion, diced
    1 red bell pepper, diced
    4 cloves garlic, minced
    2 cups chicken broth
    1 cup uncooked rice (or a 10 ounce package yellow rice mix)
    1 (28 ounce) can Mexican style stewed tomatoes (or two 14 1/2 oz cans)
    1 (15 ounce) can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
    1 (15 ounce) can black beans, drained and rinsed
    *1 (15 ounce) can whole kernel corn, drained
    1 (4 ounce) can diced green chile peppers, drained
    3/4 cup coarsely chopped fresh cilantro
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon pepper
    1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper

    * you could sub 1 can of drained garbanzo beans/chick peas for the corn if you prefer

    Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
    Stir onion, bell pepper, and garlic into the skillet. Cook 5 minutes, until tender.
    Add chicken broth.
    Stir in the rice, stewed tomatoes, pinto beans, black beans, corn, diced green chili peppers, and cilantro.
    Season with salt, pepper, and cayenne pepper.
    Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 30 minutes, until rice is tender.

    i swear i didn't combine any recipes, i didn't make any changes to the one i had, it was called Spanish Rice and i was sure i got it from this site.
    perhaps i got it from another site? oh well, i'm def gonna try this one that you posted for me, thank you so much.

    the one i used also called for fresh tomatoes, no chilies, no other spices other than the cilantro and i think it was white rice, i had to wash it first.

    wow, thanks to everyone for the wonderful responses and i will keep looking.

    greatly appreciated,
