    My boyfriend recently cooked a great meal of oxtails with sweet and spicy beans. I made a variation of it without the meat. I cooked pinto beans with brown sugar, onions, allspice, ginger, garlic, hot sauce, ketchup and raisins. I served it with rice and kale. tasty.

    Kayla, why don’t you try stir fried rice? Put a small amount of olive oil in large skillet, brown some garlic to release flavor, cook any veggies on hand, add cooked rice, and season (with msg, soy sauce, oyster sauce, black pepper, hot sauce, whatever you prefer), stir to mix well, cover skillet to let flavors blend and cook to your desired texture. I like vegetarian stir fry, but you may add shrimp or pieces of chicken/beef/lobster/crab meat.

    I love the WW packages of rice and beans. I do a similar recipe to yours (I think- I don’t really measure) but I use black beans. Then mix a little sour cream, shredded cheese and salsa and microwave it and pour it on top. It’s a little more extravagant, but I usually have that stuff on hand for other homemade goodies.

    Oh, and I use home-made salsa instead of tomatoes and chilies. It’s nearly free.

    I can’t eat beans though :( But I LOVE rice. (Well, I love beans as well, but I can’t eat it, like I said–medical reasons.) We add salsa to rice to make “spanish rice” and you can add cream of [blank] soups to rice to make a dish. And cheese. :D I love eatting leftover spanish rice in tortillas for breakfast or lunch the next day.
