Introduction

Brought To Your Kitchen From SparkPeople Member: LBBROCK195

"This is one of my favorites because it is easy, fast and simple and versatile. If you like brown rice, I recommend using it in this and all recipes. It takes a bit longer to cook but is worth the wait, for both nutrition and taste. There is an instant brown rice on the market now, too."

    I made this with a few variations. I used dry cooked black beans instead of canned which cut down on the sodium. I browned onion, garlic, peppers with cumin, chili powder and added frozen corn to the pan, I used much less salsa, just several TBS in mixing with the rice, beans and onion mixture. - 6/28/09

    I rinsed the black beans and used frozen corn.
    Just wanted to mention that I fix a large amount of brown rice in my crock pot.It keeps well in a covered containter in the fridge,saves energy.The thing to remember when preparing brown rice is it takes a little extra liquid than white rice. - 2/5/09

    FYI: You can cook a large quanity of rice, brown or white (your choice) It will freeze beautifully in ziplock bags. Thaws quickly. May this SPARK of information help each one. - 1/25/10

    If you use frozen or fresh Corn the calories are reduced considerably. Corn and Beans together also provide complete proteins.
    Excellent!

    Made this before and found it simple, tasty and will make it frequently. Have used chopped left over Crock Pot Salsa chicken in this and served over shredded
    romaine. Tasty, light and yet filling. Can also add grated
    jalapeno cheese, tomatoes, crushed baked tortilla chips and a touch of s. cream. - 6/15/08
