This morning Mrs.J said that we’re having rice & beans for dinner tonight. It gave me an idea for today’s post…

When we have a meal with ‘rice and beans’, we don’t JUST have rice and beans. There’s more to it… the other ‘stuff’ that goes with it or on it – to make it all more palatable and interesting. The spices, sauces, combinations thereof, etc.. all the different recipes.

So, given that most preparedness-minded folks include rice and beans in their deep pantry of food storage, I thought it would be fun to list our favorite recipes to share with each other.


Note: Rice is rich in starch, and an excellent source of energy. Beans are rich in protein, and contain other minerals. The consumption of the two together provides all of the essential amino acids and it’s no wonder why this combination is a staple of many diets throughout the world…

Note: You can cook rice and beans with a lot less fuel by using a thermal cooker.
