I’m not a cooker. I’m more of a preparer. That’s why you won’t see many recipes on my show that require more than five steps. So I put a little twist on the BBQ rice and beans recipe I found on the Minute Rice recipe page. I thought it would be the perfect side dish for the already prepared rotisserie chicken I purchased at the grocery store. I also chose it because our son loves BBQ sauce, he’ll get much needed protein from the kidney beans along with vegetables from the onions and green peppers.

1 can (15 1/4 oz.) kidney beans, drained

Recipe Reveal

I wish you could have smelled the onions and peppers as they sautéed in the skillet. I almost wanted to eat them without the rice. From start to finish, including chopping the onions and peppers, this Minute Rice recipe took less than 15 minutes. As a first timer, I made it during my son’s afternoon nap. This way I didn’t have the stress of cooking with him holding on to my legs – like toddlers love to do.

Thanks to this recipe, we had enough for leftovers which is another time saver. I also added a little BBQ sauce across the top so my son could see it! For some reason he didn’t believe that there was BBQ sauce in the recipe.

  2. As a southern girl, I think that all BBQ is sooooo GOOD! This meal looks really nice!

  3. Looks yummy, I’m not a fan of barbeque sauce but I can certainly add another type of dressing to kick up the rice a notch … I love drizzling Italian dressing over my white rice YUM

  4. I am such a fan of beans and rice! Your dish looks fabulous! Of course I sit here smelling dinner cooking away in the kitchen, and am now even more hungry!

  5. Rice and Beans seem to be universal, we love them!

  6. Looks yummy! Your site is coming up a little weird for me. A strange format. =(

  12. Thanks for sharing a quick recipe idea. Ready made rotisserie chicken and Minute Rice are quick components that make it easier to have a delicious balanced meal with very little time needed for preparation and cooking.

  13. Yum, that looks good! I definitely have used Minute Rice as a help when I needed to get food done quickly. Regular rice takes almost an hour, and if I start dinner late, I don’t have that time to spare!

  14. Never thought to try bbq sauce in rice…yum!

  15. I saw this back in the 90s (when I was a bachelor) on the Minute Rice box. Was a favorite for several years. Now I’m showing my son how to make it.
