beans and rice

I'm pretty sure everyone has that go-to meal- where you know you need to eat, but don't want/can't afford to go to the grocery store so you suck it up and make whatever you have. For me, it is beans and rice. I always seem to have the ingredients, it's super cheap, and it's a complete protein. Also, I never seem to mind eating it. I don't enjoy it, but I don't mind it either. Add some peas, tomatoes and sour cream and it's almost yummy. Almost.

So what's yours? I'd love some new ideas.

I'm also a beans and rice fan. I like to add salsa and diced tomatoes. Sometimes some jalapeno (when I'm living on the edge).

Oooh, and frozen corn. That is good to add. I bet it would be good with onion and curry too.
