Red Beans and Rice
Anyone who knows me even a little bit will know that my staple food is pretty much beans and rice. I usually don't write about every single beans and rice recipe I make because I'd have about 6.5 posts a week about it.
This one, however, stood out a little bit, because I normally don't make RED beans and rice. So here we go. My Wednesday night Red Beans and Rice:
Brown rice, cooked according to package
3/4 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped mini sweet peppers
1/2 cup chopped fresh tomato
1 teaspoon canned chipotle pepper
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 can red beans
Salt and pepper
While the rice is cooking, heat a large pan on medium heat. Add coconut oil, onion and sweet peppers, and saute until soft.
Stir in tomatoes and chipotle pepper. Heat for about 2 minutes.
Add beans, stir well, and turn heat to low. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Let simmer for about 10-15 minutes.
When rice is done, pile high the beans atop the rice and enjoy while nice and hot!
That was easy, right?
