|No I am not an expert on Rice and Beans in the South way of making them or in the wonderful Latin way, but an expert on spicing it up! |
This is something I threw together that was delicious, easy, perfect for a barbecue and a great side dish and I just love red beans and rice no matter who makes it!
2 cups red beans or pinto beans canned or dried cooked
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 cups cooked rice to package instructions ( I used success rice which is instant)
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
dash of cayenne pepper
1/4 teaspoon oregano
salt and pepper to taste
Saute cooked beans in 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of minced garlic. Add cooked rice in a bowl with the beans toss with all seasonings add olive oil, blend together.
Serve warm with your favorite barbecued pork.
