Rice and Beans

Best Blog Tips
This is a very simple but absolutely delicious way of preparing rice! This dish is very popular in the Caribbean and traditional in many of the islands where it is prepared in an endless variety of ways! Here is a very easy way of making it:

2 cups brown rice 1 can Pinto beans or preferred kind of beans

1 medium onion (peeled)

1/2 cup green sweet pepper, chopped

1/4 cup sweet red pepper, chopped

Salt to taste

3/4 cup tomato sauce

3 Tbsp. sweet paprika powder

1 Tbsp. garlic powder

1 cilantro sprig

1/2 Tbsp. italian Seasoning (mix of sweet basil, oregano, sage in equal parts)

3 Tbsp. olive oil

3 1/2 cups water (to cook rice, or amount recommended in package)

Cook brown rice following package directions. When rice is almost done, add the beans and all the seasonings and oil. Mix thoroughly, and let simmer covered, over low heat, until the rice has absorbed all the liquid. If a little bit of more water is needed, add it, and let it cook until done.
