Beans and Rice with a Kick

This is a quick and easy recipe that tastes great, even the kids love it, and it costs less than $10 to make! (It's also great for diabetics!)


  • 2/3 cup rice
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • non-stick cooking spray
  • 3/4 cup chopped onions
  • 1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 (4 oz.) can chopped green chilies (we use mild for the kids)
  • 2 tsp. taco seasoning mix


Cook rice in 1 1/3 cups of water.

While rice cooks, coat a medium non-stick skillet with cooking spray. Over medium heat, cook onions until translucent, stir frequently. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 1-2 minutes. Add rice, then serve.
