We have all had those nights when you don't have anything ready and need to get dinner on the table ASAP. When this happens, you need a back-up plan.
Here's one of my favorites — Mexican Rice & Beans. This is an easy recipe to throw together at the last minute. And it's very nutrient-dense.
Last-Minute Mexican Rice & Beans
Brown rice, organic if possible, and better yet, sprouted
Frozen homemade chicken broth, homemade if possible; if not, use packaged organic chicken broth
Canned beans (black or pinto, organic if possible)
Grass-fed butter, raw if possible — where to buy butter
Lacto-fermented salsa (see my recipe here)
Leftover roasted grass-fed beef or chicken — where to buy meats
Sour cream (to make sour cream, just leave raw cream sitting out in a warm place overnight with a little added sour cream or buttermilk) — where to buy starters
Sea salt — where to buy sea salt
1. Make your rice according to the directions on your rice cooker (or you can do it the old fashioned way — but it's a lot easier with a rice cooker). The only change you should make is to substitute chicken stock for the water. This will greatly boost the nutrient content of the meal.
If you are using brown rice, you will need to let it cook longer — so you may want to use white rice if you're short on time. Not as nutrient dense, but the chicken broth will help matters.
2. Warm the canned beans in a saucepan. Add a little chicken broth and let it cook down. Add sea salt to taste.
3. If you are using roasted beef or chicken, warm it up in a saucepan.
4. Grate some cheese (fastest way is in a food processor).
5. When the beans and rice are done, add some butter to the rice (to taste) and then layer the rice, then the beans, then the roasted meat in bowls.
6. Sprinkle grated cheese on top.
7. Serve with lacto-fermented salsa and/or sour cream and/or avocado.

Support Me & My Work
I have been blogging about real food, alternative health, and about the dangers of vaccines and Big Pharma since 2007. As a result, the cabal has punished me severely financially via the IRS, FTC, hacks, etc. I lost my blog network in 2014 which I now believe was an orchestrated attack. Last summer, I lost 80% of my income from my blog due to the Google algorithm change that impacted almost all health bloggers including Dr. Mercola.I'm now working to build my blog and YouTube channel and I appreciate all the support from my fans. Once I can start making more money, I will be able to hire some help and childcare, so I can create more content. Thank you for any help you can offer. Here are some ways you can support me as a content creator and journalist:
- Support me on Patreon (I'm still setting up the bonuses from the tiers but you can start donating now).
- Buy my shampoo or skincare. Want more info? Read my review of MONAT. Or click here to learn how to order MONAT and save the most money. Got questions? Send me an email at email@example.com with any questions or if you need help placing an order.
- Send me a donation via Paypal: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Enroll in my online course: Online Marketing Simplified. Updates to the course are temporarily on hold so I can cover Q -- but I will be back to adding course lessons as soon as the storm is over and we are out of quarantine -- any week now!
- If you can't help financially, it's OK! You can help by sharing my content. Share my blog posts, YouTube videos, and Facebook & Instagram posts, and leave me comments. Sharing helps get my work seen -- and liking and commenting helps boost the content in the search engine algorithms.
