100 Day Challenge, Dinner, Side Dish

On my way to 100 recipes in 100 days.  Here is recipe 8.
I am brining you another inexpensive meal for Frugal Friday.  This is the perfect filling meal to stretch your dollar at the end of the pay period.  I served this on lettuce with taco toppings that I had in the fridge.  YUM
Normally, my girls are not big fans of rice.  But with all the tasty additions to this rice, they had no troubles gobbling it down.  You can use any kind of rice and any kind of beans in the recipe.  Get creative with what is in the pantry.
