• 1 medium onion
  • 1-2 cloves garlic
  • 1 15oz. can kidney beans, or other bean if preferred, rinsed
  • 1 15oz. can diced tomatoes w/ green chiles
  • 1 veg. boullion cube (or 2 cups veg. broth)
  • 2 cups water (omit if using 2 cups veg. broth)
  • 1 cup uncooked white rice (any kind can be used)
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil
  • shake of Adobo spice, optional (mix of spicy spices)
  • salt to taste


Chop onions and garlic. Put the water or veg. broth in a pot with a lid and bring to a boil. (Once boiling, add boullion cube to water.) Add the garlic, onion, beans, and tomatoes and chiles, and bring to a boil again. Add the rice, oil, spices, and salt and stir. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low simmer, stir once more and cover with lid. Cook about 15-20 minutes, until water is absorbed. It may be a shorter or longer time depending on which kind of rice you use, so keep checking!
