Last Minute Rice & Beans

4 servings of brown rice
1 can Rotel tomatoes & green chilies
1 can pinto beans, drained

In a small sauce pan, mix beans and Rotel and cook until hot. Prepare the rice according to package instructions. Combine bean & Rotel mixture with rice and enjoy.

Making burritos for dinner tonight, I went to the pantry to grab some spanish rice and behold...there was none. Since I had already made the rest of the meal, I decided to try a new concoction and it turned out very yummy. It's a great side dish or a burrito/bowl filling. Since it's a lot healthier than the processed rice packet from the store, this may become a new staple. Beware, it does have a bit of a kick to it and may be too much for the little ones.
