My Version of Mexican Rice and Beans


I struggled with the name of this post.  This is by NO means an authentic Mexican recipe.  It is just something I threw together that is reminiscent of Mexican flavors, at least to me.  We love it, and I hope you will!
First, I sauteed onions and garlic in butter.  I really believe that anything that starts like that can’t be bad.  It just smells so good!
Next, I added rice that I cooked earlier in the week…
…and red beans I cooked up in the crockpot.
After adding in some more yummy butter, I threw in some chopped up scallions. 
Once it was all warm, it was time to season it!
The last 2 things I added in were frozen corn and chopped tomatoes.  YUM!

  1. This looks really good! It reminds me a lot of my grandma-in-law's cajun red beans and rice.

  2. This looks so good that I had to get up and take a bag of dry pinto beans to fix for tomorrow. Thanks for the recipe.


  3. I love your version of Mexican Rice and Beans! It looks and sounds wonderful. Cumin adds such a lovely flavour to things. Thank you for sharing it with the Hearth and Soul Blog Hop!
