Black Beans With Rice And MangoesPosted: February 8, 2011
This is one of those recipes that uses ingredients from both a short and long term pantry. Beans and rice can be stored for long periods, while the peppers and mangoes can be stored for a shorter length of time in the freezer. If you make this in the late summer, peppers from the garden are also an option. This recipe was adapted from, Fresh From the Vegetarian Slow Cooker.
