  • 1 can 10 oz each Rotel Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, undrained
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions
  • 1-1/2 cups instant white rice uncooked
  • 1 can 15 oz each Ranch Style Pinto Beans with Sliced Jalapenos, undrained
  • 1 tsp salt


  • In a medium saucepan, add undrained tomatoes, water, salt, and onions. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat
  • Stir in the rice and undrained beans with jalapenos until thoroughly mixed; cover.
  • Remove the saucepan from the heat. Let stand for 10 minutes with the lid on. Fluff with a fork before serving.


For the beans with jalapenos, you can substitute a 15-ounce can of regular Ranch Style Pinto Beans (without jalapenos) plus a 4-ounce can of diced jalapeno peppers. This also allows you to customize your heat level by adding more or less jalapenos.
