    Vino Girl's Note:

    There's a lot of beans and rice recipes already here, but it seems I can't get enough of them. This one comes from Real Simple magazine, and it's different than the types I normally make since it doesn't have tomatoes, and it is also a mild-flavored dish.

      Quite delicious. The only changes I made were to add oregano and to use apple cider vinegar instead of red wine vinegar. Everyone loved this!

      My family really enjoyed this recipe and it is so easy to make!! I used a poblano pepper instead of a bell pepper and it added just the right amount of heat!

      I really enjoyed this dish! I had been craving rice and beans and this was perfect. I used a red pepper and chicken broth. It is so easy to make and so satisfying!
