I make beans and rice for dinner once a week. The idea came from my travels while in the Miami airport. La Carreta has the best airport food I have ever found. If you go there get the beans and rice. If you’re not going to Miami today..go to Trader Joe’s for their Cuban black beans and try this.
Make the yellow rice. (Can get at Kroger or any non-specialty store) Set aside. Rinse the plain black beans and throw them in a skillet, pour the Cuban beans on top. Mix and heat. Spoon beans on rice in a bowl to serve. Right here you have spent about $4. Splurge and add some rotisserie chicken, a little fresh chopped onion, tomato, and a squeeze of lime. Do not forget a ton of Tabasco or Frank’s Hot Sauce. It’s my go to healthy meal, even my kids love–for about $10.
