Your recipes sound GREAT! I am going to try the burrito recipe. Brocolli & white beans in a buritto sounds very interesting!

Thanks for SHARING!

I have a lot of white rice with white dry beans. What can I do with these with very limited items to mix with them? What kinds of spices would you recommend to make a delicious meal?
