This is a wonderful recipe that is similar to the rice and bean dish that was served at Houston's.

Wonderful quick side dish to put together on a very hot summer day! I used a regular whole small onion in place of the red, and added in some fresh minced garlic also. I'm thinking that the next time I make it, I will add in some ground beef to make it a complete meal. This dish was wonderful served with grilled burgers, thank you Chris from Kansas for sharing!....Kitten:)
