This is great for taco or burrito filling. I use brown rice instead of the white rice and use it for a meatless meal for the family. Awesome and thank you Prose!

Yummy rice and beans! I am watching my sodium intake so I did rinse the beans as stated, In place of the taco spices I used dried parsley, dried oregano, paprika, 1 1/2 teaspoons cumin, black pepper and chili powder. Also used 4 clove of roasted garlic. Added a rib of celery, 2 minced Serrano's, and a 1/2 of a red bell pepper. Served over brown basmati rice with shredded cheese and a dollop of guacamole. Thanks

This was super easy and tasted as if I had spend hours making it! My DH loved it and it went very well with #179611 Oven Barbecued Baby Back Ribs. Thanks Prose for posting this delicious, easy recipe.
