Rice and Beans

When I lived at home with my family before coming to Sacramento State, my dad would sometimes make my siblings and I his "specialty" of rice and beans. Believe me, I was skeptical on this "creation" but when I tried it, I was hooked!

Now that I'm living away from home, having tasty meals in my tummy is definitely not easy. Making dinner from scratch is not my area of expertise, so when I want to make something quick and yummy after a long day of school, I think of rice and beans.

All you need is white rice, a can of beans (I use Stagg Chili steak house reserve chili with beans, which includes beef with green chilies), and a can of corn (I use Green Giant Niblets). You can use any type of beans you like, but if you decide to use the Stagg Chili, you can purchase it at Costco. The Stagg Chili I use is great because it's a little spicy. You can probably find this brand of chili at your local grocery store as well.

Just cook the rice, heat up the beans and corn, mix it all together, and you've got one easy, delicious meal. Enjoy!
