Tex-Mex Black Beans & Saffron Rice

40 mins (prep 10, cooking 30)
9 ingredients
6-8 servings
After tasting this at a neighbor's Super Bowl party one year, I quickly scribbled down the recipe. This is a fairly simple dish to throw together and is a great accompaniment to Tex-Mex style dishes, although this isn't pretending to be any sort of authentic dish from any one particular region. I have made it many times over the years and this is a great dish for a potluck. Mahatma saffron rice comes in shiny yellow foil tubes in the rice section of your grocery store. I usually follow the microwave instructions for preparing the rice. I serve this as a side dish, but I think a Vegetarian who eats dairy would be able to enjoy this as a meal as well.
