Please pass the beans.....Part 1

On Fridays we tend to go meatless around here. It is a requirement during Lent but we do it during the year just so I don't need to worry about forgetting at Lent. One thing we have liked making is rice and black beans. mmm.... very tasty. I love how quick and easy this meal comes together

Rice and Beans

1 cup rice
2 cups water (can substitute up to 1/2 cup of salsa)
1 T butter

Put in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce to low and cook 15 - 20 minutes.

In another sauce add a 14.5 oz can of rinsed and drained beans. Add some taco seasoning. Add 1/2 cup water. Heat throughly.

Pile the beans on to the rice and add your favorite taco toppings.

Serves 3-4
