My brother, the real family chef, taught me how to make this incredibly easy and delicious dish in less than ten minutes. Perfect for the dirt-poor college student in your life.


  1. 1Open can of beans, drain liquid, and put in a large enough bowl for mixing in other ingredients. Microwave or otherwise cook until entire bowl is warm. (About 1:30 seconds in a 1500 watt microwave oven)
  2. 2While beans are still slightly warm, add a substantial amount of white rice, as much as you prefer.
  3. 3Put entire mixture back into microwave and cook for another minute and a half or until very warm or hot.
  4. 4Afterwards, take the still-hot mixture of rice and beans and mix in the shredded cheese until melted into the mix.
  5. 5Sprinkle diced onions on top; you can either serve this way or mix onions in. (I prefer the latter)
  6. 6Optional: Mix with slightly wilted spinach for color, flavor, and texture.
