i found a recipe that i will try.. looks good.. Of course i will substitute canned beans for the ones i made, forget the oil, forget the salt, and probably not add so many onions. I think i will have to add it to the Fast Fresh & Frugel thread.. ( I should have added Fabulous to that stretch)
I might add cumin, or chilpolte chili pepper, and/or jalapenos. You could substitute pico de gyo instead of salsa.. So many easy variations!
I bet i could make this quicker than having pizza delivered!
Salsa Red Beans N Rice
1 medium green pepper, chopped
1/4 cup chopped red onion
3 green onions, finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon olive oil
5 cups cooked brown rice
1 1/4 cups salsa
1 (16oz) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 tsp salt
In a large nonstick skillet, saute the green pepper, onions and garlic in oil till tender. Stir in the rice, salsa, beans and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered 2-3 min or till heated through.
