Mexican Beans and Rice from leftover Red Beans and Rice

I love to create a meal from another meal. This was a hit, so I had to share with you. 😊😊😊😊 Here we go…

Step 1 – Saute these items in pan until soft:

Non-stick pan

4 teaspoons vegetable oil

2 medium chopped onions

1 large bell pepper diced

3 cloves garlic, chopped

Step 2 – Add these items and mix well:

1 cup leftover beans (with no sausage)

2/3 cup rice (or more or less)

1 tablespoon of brine (juice from jar) from jalapeΓ±os or pepperoncini peppers

Season left to right of pan, usingm salt, pepper, garlic powder, and chili powder

Juice of half of lime (or whole one, if you like it more tart)

Handful of cilantro, chopped

1 large tomato diced into very small pieces

Enjoy!
