I made this in Malawi whenever I could get my hands on pasta (doesn't have to be just rotini) It lasted a long time and was a taste of 'home' for me. Can be lower in calories if you have access to splenda.

Southwestern Beans & Rice
Very Good 4.4/5

Cookbook creator says: Use the pico de gallo recipe as your salsa and cook your own beans from dried. You can use just about any bean. Don't have corn? Don't worry add a little of some other colorful vegetable that you can get locally.
