Minute Rice – Ready to Serve Black Beans & Rice Review + Coupon Giveaway!

I recently received a package in the mail from Minute Rice. Inside was 2 little cups, a coupon, a clip & a note. Now, I don’t remember signing up for this Taste Test, but heck.. I’ll take it! I love Rice & Black Beans!

I was a little iffy about it after opening up the cups.. the rice looked great but the beans… I just wasn’t sure if they’d be good. Heck, in all honestly, I imagined them to be the worst tasting beans ever…

To my surprise, they were actually very flavorful. The rice & beans were cooked perfectly after 90 seconds in the microwave.

I would love to try adding some Collard greens & Pork next time to make one of my favorite Brazilian dishes, but for now… this really hit the spot!

Here is how this product rates:

  • Appearance of Rice: 10
  • Appearance of Beans: 3
  • Size of Beans: 8

 While the beans didn’t look appealing, they were great! Never judge a book by it’s cover!

    I love making homade fried rice with eggs mixed veggies and sometimes chicken makes for a really cheap quick meal that you freeze for later use!

    Love mixing rice with cilantro and lime juice. Goes great in burritos and most dishes and even great a just a side!

    My favorite recipe is the half off General tso’s chicken spice flavoring at Shaw’s. It is on sale now for $1 and there is a .25 cent coupon that “might” double. The flavor is amazing and it is so tendor. Even my 6 year old loves it over rice!
