This is one of my go-to budget meal! You can do so many things with this red kidney beans brown rice. For example, layer it with some lettuce on a tortilla wrap. You can also make a burrito bowl out of it, or eat it as is with a side of avocado. Have you tried eating avocado with your rice? It’s epic! rice and Kidney beans

It only cost me 5.68 bucks to make a week worth of that red kidney beans and brown rice. The bag of brown rice was .99 cents, the can of beans was .89 cents each, the vegetable broth was $ 1.00, the coconut milk was $ 1.23, and the pack of spinach was 0.68 cents.

I don’t include the spices and seasonings because these are stuff I buy in bulk and always have around.brown rice and Kidney beans
