Zippy Beans and Rice

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Sweet Diva MJ

From Taste of Home. I am posting the original recipe that lists instant rice, but I make this with regular brown rice in my steamer/rice cooker which increases the cooking time to about 40-45 minutes.

I made this a little less zippy by leaving out the jalapeno pepper. I used boil-in-bag instant brown rice that I took out of the bag. I didn't turn it off and let it sit but instead let it boil until the rice was cooked. Then I served this in low carb tortillas with a little fat free sour cream and a little cheese. Very nice and easy dinner. We'd like to try hominy in place of the corn sometime.
