Spicy Black Beans and Rice

Growing up, my mom made this dinner often after a good workout. The great thing about it is that it is packed with so much delicious flavors, you really wouldn’t mind eating healthy if this dish was placed in front of you. It was and still is one of my favorite easy dinners to whip up. It is so easy, fast and delicious.

It comes from the Better Homes and Gardens Cooking for Today Vegetarian Recipes Cookbook that my mom bought years back. Our family has given it 4 stars and 2 enthusiastic thumbs up :) If you are looking for a healthy, filling, easy and flavorful meal- then this is the recipe for you!

    This looks wonderful! Are the Mexican style tomatoes the same as Rotel or can Rotel be used for it?
    Thanks!

      I am so sorry Nitasha. Thank you so much for bringing them to my attention. Some of my older recipes were loaded differently and are out of date now. I am having to go back one by one by one and fix them. This one is fixed now and please let me know if you run into any others and I will get them fixed right away for you :)
