Rice and beans is probably one of my favourite things to make when I want something simple. I added 1 tsp of cumin and paprika, 1/2 tsp garlic salt, and a few shakes of freshly ground pepper into the water, to give it a little extra depth.
Pair it with some sweet potatoes and freshly sliced tomatoes for complete heaven. I seasoned these sweet potatoes the same as I did the rice - a few pinches of cumin, paprika, garlic salt, and pepper. The white dollop next to these is some delicious lime mayonnaise (!!!) that my room mate brought home from Costa Rica. I will be very disappointed when it's finally all used up.
