About the Recipe


  • 2 cans refried beans

  • ½ teaspoon granulated garlic

  • 1 teaspoon chili powder

  • ½ teaspoon cumin

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • ¼ cup water

  • 3 cups sticky white rice (or long grain, whichever you prefer)

  • 6 cups water

  • ½ teaspoon salt


  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

  • 1 cup favorite salsa

  •  ½ cup sour cream


  1. Cook the rice (1 cup rice to two cups water and salt). 

  2. Mix the refried beans and spices together with 1/2 cup water in a saucepan and heat on medium heat. 

To serve:  Place about a cup of steaming hot sticky rice in a bowl.  On top of that put about 1/2 cup to a cup of refried beans on the rice.  Top off with salsa, shredded cheddar cheese, and sour cream. I have been known to bypass the spoon and use the tortilla chips as a utensil.
