I like simple to make and tasty food. This dish is a favorite at my house because it meets both of those conditions. It takes less than five minutes of prep time. This time I modified my recipe for Easy Southwestern Rice by adding one 15oz can of rinsed pinto beans. Otherwise the recipe is the same. Click on the link to see the full recipe.
Here is a close up shot of the ingredients before the rice maker is turned on.
After about 30-35 minutes, it was done and we were ready to eat. Who knew adding salsa could add so much flavor with so little effort. Our favorite salsa to add is a chipotle-lime that we purchased at Costco.
