This is one of the best meals to cook any time of the year! You can use this as a side dish or to eat as the main meal as this recipe has enough nutrition and protein, and beans are one of the healthiest things you can eat. This is an extremely versatile dish as you can serve with anything, but this is absolutely perfect the way it is and we wouldn't change a thing about this! Pete's Fancy Beans and Rice is a flavorful one-pot meal, and this easy dinner will become a family favorite. Thank you Peter for sharing your delicious recipe so everybody can try this!
Best beans and rice ever. My entire nutritional planning is based around cooking this once per week. - Peter
