Salsa Red Beans N Rice

Rated as 4.48 out of 5 Stars

"Diane Harrison of Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania up this quick side dish using canned kidney beans, brown rice and salsa. It's an ideal accompaniment to Mexican-style entrees but can also be served as a meatless main dish for a light meal. 'This is a family favorite,' relates Diane."

This was okay. Next time I am going to make it with home made salsa and different beans as I didn't like the odd taste of pre-made salsa and those beans in it.

This was a great filler for the stuffed bell peppers I make. Great recipe. Yummy!!!!!!!
