Mexican Rice & Beans


Life is moving so fast. I wanted to make this recipe for Kenya for Cinco de Mayo and somehow totally forgot. Sadly, I think Alzheimer's is setting in early.
Kenya loves beans. Whether they're pureed in a dish, mixed with other ingredients like this dish, or on their own, he loves 'em.
The vegetarians in your life will also love you for making this. Simple, yet packed with flavor. You don't need to celebrate a holiday in order to whip this dish up.

*If your baby doesn’t eat solids, you could easily puree this recipe.

*In this recipe I prefer organic canned tomatoes. Some little ones have
texture issues, so it's much easier for babies to eat the soft canned
