My dear hubby Mike found this recipe on a can of Rosarita refried Beans a few weeks ago. He has been talking about making this recipe ever since he laid his eyes on it, but we didn’t have the ingredients and then we forgot to pick up ingredients that we needed when we were at the grocery store. Well finally we picked up the ingredients this past weekend.
Tonight I came home to house that had the most wonderful aroma. Mike was in the kitchen cooking away making this recipe. I have to admit I couldn’t wait to sit down and eat.
One word can sum up the flavor of this dish… yummy! I loved the refried beans along the rice and the tomato and chili blend gives this dish a little heat. I know that this one will be on the menu in the future… also I have to admit Mike is quite the cook.
