  • Does it have to be black beans. I have a recipe for red beans and rice. It lasts my family 2-3 days.

  • Red beans would be fine, too. I have been buying the Vigo brand of premade kits for Black Beans and Rice at $2.50 for 4 servings. Any recipe that is easy to prepare, very cheap and has flavor while not including much meat or heavy seasonings. Any recipes you care to share would be greatly appreciated. I already have about 20 lbs of rice on hand, and have always wanted to learn to cook those bags of dried beans I see in the grocery store. I am cutting back my budget severely because I am getting rid of a debt that I owe, and if I stay on plan, I can have it paid of in one year. So, if it takes eating beans and rice, or any other cheap food, I will do it. Thanks.
