I made this recipe to serve one so it is super easy to adjust to feed however many people you’re cooking for. Or if it’s just you on a Saturday morning and you feel like whipping up a batch, that works too.
I was leery because this began as a ‘healthy’ alternative to the Mexican food I always crave. Have faith ladies, I found a way to make it unhealthy by adding the cheese! This is a repeater in our house. I go the easy route and use packaged Spanish rice, but if you have your own recipe, go for it!
This is a fantastic recipe that I remember my grandmother making using a variety of yummy beans. My uncle has had the recipe since my grandmother passed, and just recently gave it to me. I decided to share it with the world, as it is that good! Other than the taste, the great thing about it is that it will keep for weeks in the refrigerator. Made ahead, it works well to take to work, potlucks, or a light snack.
