Eden Foods Organic Brown Rice Pinto Beans -- 15 oz
Adding to my list of favorite Eden Rice & Beans
Now that I've tried this variety, I rate it in the #3 position, with Spanish R&B first, Mexican R&B second, this one, then Cajun followed by Caribbean. All of them very good. Typically I add 1/2 can of black beans and 1/2 can of petite diced tomatoes, some turmeric and cayenne pepper to taste, and some bacon bits.

Very Convenient Staple
I've been in a mode where I just don't want to have to plan or commit to doing a lot of cooking (I'm in school, for one reason). I find myself studying etc. until I'm starving, and yet I don't want to break my flow by stopping to engage in a cooking session.
While it's not hard to cook rice and beans, still I decided to give these kinds of products a try. The first one I tried (Mexican Rice and Beans) was good but a bit too spicy for me. This one is a perfect basic. It has flavor but is neutral, so that you can add it to, or have it on the side with, just about anything. It is a little saucy, so it doesn't dry out when heated, like some pre-cooked rice products do. Also the touch of sauciness enhances any additions you make, creating a sort of instant casserole effect.
One-half of a can is a generous serving; it is filling and satisfying. The beans are properly cooked to a tender but not mushy state. The rice is cooked until quite tender, a bit more than I would cook rice if I was doing it from scratch, but certainly not mushy.

We added this to our chili and found it to be a perfect addition for a more rounded & robust dish!

Didn't like the smell
It smells odd and taste like it needs something..possibly salt or garlic salt.
