Today I am sharing a super easy Spanish Rice with Beans recipe that we love and make again and again. The girls love this recipe and they even help me by throwing all of the ingredients in the dutch oven. This is also one of those one pot recipes so clean-up is super easy.

You can eat the rice on its own or wrap it up in a tortilla to make delicious dinner wraps. So yummy! I also love that beans are good for you. Beans contain a lot of soluble fiber, protein, carbohydrates, folate and iron.

When ready to serve, you can eat this right out of the pan or serve it in a wrap with salsa and sour cream. We love it both ways, and the leftovers taste even better the next day!
