This one pot Mexican rice and beans are ultimate comfort food you can ever imagine when you are busy with two active kids in household. I was born and raised in a part of India where rice is main dish for any time meal. Mixed veggie rice is common during the meal time or during festive menu.

This one pot Mexican rice and beans is loaded with lot of veggies, rice, extra beans and Progresso® Light soup Zesty Southwestern-Style Vegetable as it has some beans in the soup itself. In this recipe I use onion, garlic, ginger, tomato, red and green bell pepper and zucchini. First you half cook the rice, I used long grain white rice, and if you want you can change it into brown rice. Then cook the veggies with Progresso® Light Soup Zesty Southwestern-Style Vegetable. You need to spice it up a little with green chili, Spanish paparika, cumin powder, dried oregano, once the soup reduce little add half cook rice and some extra cooked black beans continue to cook until everything is done. Why adding half cooked rice is to prevent them making mushy rice. This one is spicy, so make sure to dial back the spices depending upon your tolerance level.
Trust me you can serve this one pot Mexican rice and beans any cold wintery day, you don’t need to spend a whole lot to time in the kitchen. It makes your dinner simple and wholesome and easy with star ingredient Progresso® Light Soup Zesty Southwestern-Style Vegetable.
