Needed Kitchenware: Cooking pot
  • 1 cup cooked rice
  • 1 cup frozen onion
  • 3 tbsp tomato purée
  • 1 tbsp oregano
  • ½ tbsp garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice

Recipe Directions


  • In a large cooking pot or pan, saute the onion in the tomato purée, oregano, garlic powder, cayenne pepper, lemon juice, and black pepper on medium heat.
  • Add in the corn and bell peppers and mix until heated thoroughly.
  • Add the kidney, cannellini, haricot, and adzukie beans and mix until heated thoroughly.
  • Add the baked beans, tomatoes, and cooked rice. Simmer as long as you'd like, but it is ready when heated throughout.
  • (Optional) Serve in bowls with topped cheese. Enjoy!

You can substitute any canned or frozen ingredient for fresh, just make sure it's cooked thoroughly before continuing to the next step.

I suggest using microwaveable Mexican rice as the cooked rice ingredient. Prepare according to the package's instructions.
