Black Beans and Brown Rice Extravaganza

This is a mainstay dinner dish that is as basic as they come and oh, so good. Just like my morning bowl of cereal, I’ve been eating this meal for more than three decades. This is also a great meal to serve when you’re having extra guests over for dinner.
Serve with healthy chips or warm corn tortillas.
