Here is a great way to enjoy the classic dish of rice and beans as a salad. This would be a perfect dish to take to a picnic, or just enjoy it as we did as a main dish. I created this dish as another one of my budget weeknight meals. I found some chipotle canned corn that I added to this. You could also use fresh corn or regular canned corn, and then add a few chipotle peppers, chopped and their juice. I also added red and black beans, and lots of fresh cilantro. It was very tasty, and since my son loves rice so much, it was perfect for him too.
