Like this, at least for today's vacuum-bagging session:



Beans and rice... not a bad dinner.  If I could cook them the way they do in Mexico, I could eat them every day of  my life and not be sad.  After eating them for the entire two years I was down there, I still loved them just as much as the first day.

Mmmmm, Rice and beans...... (cue the slobbering Homer pic)

A few of my favorites-

1/2 rice and 1/2 black beans.  Add salsa and hot sause (a lot of each) and top with mozerella cheese.

1/2 rice and 1/2 Cattle Drive chili from Costco.  I can't eat Nalley's chili again after eating Cattle Drive (and I'm a culinary retard, so making my own is out, don't bother suggesting it)

Cold rice with cinnamon and sugar, add milk and eat like cereal for breakfast

Don't forget the Beano.

Here's an awesome dinner with rice and beans:

1 can black beans
1 can diced tomatos (drained)
1 can corn (drained)
1 can chili

simmer all of those for a while, scoop it over brown rice, then top with guacamole.

You need to get basmati rice if you want something good. The Lakshmi brand produces some good product that you can get at your neighborhood Indian grocery store. Try some and you will thank me.

You can always add chipotle sauce to the mix...  Bufalo, FTW:

Or the dried crushed peppers like you put on pizza.  That stuff should store well.

That sounds really yummy!  I might add some cheese and maybe sour cream.

Have you tried using a clay pot.  I have one my grandmother gave me that I cook mine in.  It really does make a difference in the taste.

are those similar to Pinto beans?

The ones I bagged were pinto beans.  Black beans are similar, but taste much better.  I just haven't found a good source to buy them in large quantity (25-100 lbs).

Blue Chip Group.  About 3800 S and 400 W, right off the 35th south exit from I-215.  You can also buy them canned in #10 cans or 6gal bucket if you want.

can- $12.72
25lb bag- $29.12
42lb pail- #57.06

They also have black eye beabs, garbonzo, northern, two types of kidney, lentils, lima (yuck), red, pink, pinto, navy, split peas and yes.....refried.  They are all about the same price- give or take a few cents.

How many #'s of rice and beans is pictured?
Link Posted: 4/30/2009 12:35:39 PM EDT
50 pounds of rice, and I think 25 pounds of beans.  The beans are on top of the rest of the rice.
