Consider this is Part 1 of a 2 part post about rice and beans!! My kid’s life long love affair with black beans continues so I decided we should go beyond just heating up canned beans and try to make a recipe that tastes as good as when we are in a Mexican restaurant. I did a little research and cobbled together some different ideas to make this recipe. It came out terrific and we’ll definitely be making these again.
