Tex-Mex Rice and Beans

I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving, and didn’t get too stressed out over Black Friday shopping. I am totally enjoying my 4 day weekend! We went to my mother-in-law’s for Thanksgiving, and I ate entirely too much. I did a little shopping on Friday, but in my PJ’s, from home ;)

Today’s recipe is what I basically live on. I eat a variation of this almost every day. It’s really easy, only uses a few ingredients, and can be bulked up with salsa and guacamole. Hope you enjoy!

Tex-Mex Rice and Beans



  • 2 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 can (15oz) vegetarian refried beans
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 cup tomatoes, diced
  • 2 cups frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 can (2.25oz) sliced black olives

Mix everything together and serve. Easy peasy, right?! Makes 6 servings and here’s the nutritional info:

Tomorrow I’m planning on a 3-5 mile run, depending on how my stomach cooperates.
