Cilantro-Lime Brown Rice With Black Beans

I’m using a boil-in-a-bag quick-cooking brown rice for my Cilantro-Lime Brown Rice With Black Beans. Truth be told, I wasn’t sure about the taste of quick-cooking brown rice. Brown rice has a slightly nutty flavor. Today you can find a variety of really great products available at your local grocery store. I’m okay with the grocery store working as my “acting” sous chef. It definitely allows for more TV time.
