Lazy Beans & Rice

  • 1/2 small bag white long-cooking rice
  • pinch saffron for rice - optional
  • 1 can Progresso or Goya black beans
  • seasoning - Tony Chachere's cajun seasoning (to taste)
  • pepper
  • garlic
  • salsa or picante sauce
  • chopped chives image placeholder

Cook the rice (adding saffron if desired). Being Southern, I usually cooking it about 30 minutes to get it good and sticky!

In another pot, cook the black beans, adding Tony Chachere's, pepper and garlic to taste.

Serve in large bowls - rice, topped with black beans, topped with a "nest" of salsa and chives.

This is my favorite quick and easy recipe, bar none.
