Pinto Beans & Rice

A nod to the far reaches of the expansive Louisiana Territory. Used by local Native Americans and Mexican ranchers, pintos have long been a staple food in Mexico and Texas.


Serving Suggestion: Make a yummy taco: Add a dollop of sour cream, a pinch of shredded cheddar, and fresh pico de gallo, and roll in a tortilla.

Ingredients: parboiled long grain rice, dehydrated pinto beans, salt, spices, sugar, garlic, onion, chili peppers, palm oil, mesquite smoke. (Packed in a facility that also uses wheat.)

  • In a medium sauce pan, add 2 tablespoons butter and 3 cups water. Bring to a boil.
  • Stir in Louisiana Purchase® Pinto Beans and Rice mix.
  • Bring to a boil for about 7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 13 minutes or to desired consistency.
  • Remove from heat, give a good stir, and serve and enjoy!
