After a few minutes, add the boiling water, carefully, as it will cause steam. Add 2 cubes of beef bouillon, salt, pepper, chili powder, and other spices to taste. Bring to boil and cover. Turn down to low and simmer for 20-25 minutes. When rice is almost done, add can of beans with chili sauce and stir in. Finish cooking. You can use spicier beans to make rice spicier, or not so spicy beans to make less spicy.

  • Perfect! Exactly what I needed something simple while my DH is away. I used broccoli as it's my favorite and hubby doesn't care for it. Also, beef bouillon is NOT vegetarian so I used veggie bouillon. Yummy. Thanks. - 2/2/10
