Hello :)

My husband and I have 6 children and our main daily meals are Rice and Beans, and sometimes Beans and Rice. Needless to say we are getting a little board since we've been eating this way for about 20 years.

I am looking for a cookbook that allows me to to use beans and rice and then make many easy meals. So I would cook a big batch of rice and beans on Monday and then am given different recipes using the beans and rice already cooked. :)

Thank you in advance!

If rice and beans are your family's staple, you should try latin flavors such as those in Stefanie Molin's Sabor Latino: Flavors from Cuba, Mexico, and Spain Sabor Latino: Flavors from Cuba, Mexico & Spain to rejuvenate your dinner repertoire. They are simple and flavorful meals that save time and money as many can use precooked ingredients. Try the Cuban chili, a healthy and hearty meal that feeds an army and uses precooked beans. The Mexican rice will jazz up your old boring rice and goes with everything. The Mexican Quinoa is a nice change from rice and uses precooked beans. The Cuban Pork with Black Bean sauce uses precooked beans and goes great with rice. The burritos use precooked beans and rice and can be made with ground beef, turkey, or meatless. These recipes will surely liven up your meals with some Latin flavors. For some completely new recipes with leftovers try the fajitas or shrimp. And for a real treat have the flan.

Hope this helps.

Beans and rice are good for you and can be made in so many ways.

Also, I've made bean burgers adding tomatoes, onions, green pepper.

Beans and noodles, with italian spices tastes delicious. I like to add stewed tomatoes.

I never met a bean I didn't like, and I've always been a huge rice fan. I prefer rice over potatoes or pasta any day. Right now my favorite is black-eyed peas over jasmine rice. We like it spicy, so I make Hoppin' John. There are tons of recipes, but just cook a bag of black-eyes with some garlic, salt and pepper, bacon or fatback, celery/onion/peppers, and add a chopped jalapeno. Nice with a side of cornbread.....
