Asian/Mexican Fusion Style Beans
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 can Goya Black Beans or Black-Eyed Peas
- 1/2 bag of Sargento shredded cheese (Prefer. mix of cheddar and mozzarella)
- 2 Tbs. Vietnamese Chili Paste
- White Rice
- 1/2 Onion, diced.
- Optional: Spinach
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)
2While beans are still slightly warm, add a substantial amount of white rice, as much as you prefer.
3Put entire mixture back into microwave and cook for another minute and a half or until very warm or hot.
4Afterwards, take the still-hot mixture of rice and beans and mix in the shredded cheese until melted into the mix.
5Sprinkle diced onions on top; you can either serve this way or mix onions in. (I prefer the latter)
6Optional: Mix with slightly wilted spinach for color, flavor, and texture.
