Mexican-Style Red Beans & Rice
This dish was fairly simple and quick to make and was very good! I enjoyed it alone or on tortillas or even on chips like a bean dip almost! Very good recipe all in all.
I have been using this recipe for several years. It is even delicious as a main dish wrapped in tortillas as well. I also substitute black beans for the kidney beans, I use hot Mexican chili powder (Two teaspoons) and a teaspoon of cumin as well. Delicious and it makes a TON.
It just needed a little ground up hamburger meat. But other than that it was a HUGE hit at my house.
