Black Beans and Yellow Rice

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Chris from Kansas

A completely simple and delicious side dish or vegetarian main meal. I like to serve this with tortilla chips.

Love this combo of rice, beans and spices. It was a little too sour for me, so next time I'll cut back on the lemon juice. Probably will only use one tablespoon. Thanks for sharing!
