Pinto Beans and Rice (DF, GF)

I ALWAYS liked beans and rice !!!  Beans and rice makes a GREAT side dish or burrito filling.  It also is GREAT to take for lunch.

This recipe was adapted from Sandy's Rice Salad.

2 cups cooked brown rice
3/4 cup salsa (no sugar)
1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp cilantro flakes

Combine all ingredients together in a bowl.  Serve warm or cold.  To serve warm, microwave for a few minutes.

  1. Easy dinner there with some veggies on the side :-)
    I love how a bit of salsa mixed in with rice just seems to make plain rice, just so tasty and complete hehe

    1. Hey Sandy !!! You are right ...the salsa mixed in with the rice gives it SOOOOO much more flavor REALLY makes the rice dish tastier !!!! THANKS !!!!! - Denise
