Yellow Rice and Beans

  • 3 cups long grain white rice
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 packet Spanish seasoning (Like Goya seasoning with saffron)
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1/2 cup chopped red pepper
  • 1 cup cooked beans (I LOVE black beans)
  • chopped green onion
  • about 1/2 cup frozen peas
  • about 1/4 cup finely shredded raw carrot image placeholder

Mix together rice, water, seasoning, onion, peppers and beans. Put in a rice cooker, cover and turn to cook. OR ... Put in a covered saucepan, bring to boil, turn to warm and let Set 20 minutes or until rice is cooked. Fluff with fork.

Add green onion, peas and carrot. Mix gently. This is a really colorful dish, and reminiscent of many of the rice and beans recipes I cook.
