Black beans and rice is an easy recipe for any night of the week that doesn’t take much time at all. This classic meal can also be served with or without a meat of your choice. If you want to add meat, I would suggest adding chicken, fish, or even shrimp to this recipe for some extra protein. Most everything you need will be available at Route 17 Express… We Got You Covered!
