Black Beans and Rice

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by mandabears

This is an excellent side dish, especially with grilled chicken. I don't remember where I got the recipe, but it has been an almost weekly standard at my house.

Excellent supper, mandabears. I used Homemade Rice a Roni Recipe #24476 and Sofrito Recipe #223937 along with chipotle mango salsa. I added some garlic sauteed chicken chunks to Dh's portion to make it more satisfying (in his opinion). Think I'll make a double batch next time and try freezing it so that I have a premade side dish for those harried evenings.
