Crockpot Rice and Beans

Rice and beans – a warm Latin American meal that’s easy and inexpensive. This recipe in the crockpot makes it even easier. It’s like crockpot express, because in just 3 hours I had perfectly cooked rice and beans. I used brown rice to make this a whole grain dish, and added a teaspoon each of cumin and chili powder in place of the Italian seasoning and onion flakes. The seasoning was just right, but you could make it spicier if you wish. Oh, by the way, it’s also great nutrition, with protein and whole grain.

This is a recipe I know I’ll make over and over again. The ingredients are common pantry staples, and I can set this up on a weekend afternoon and have a warm healthy dinner that night.
