Perfect Brown Rice and Beans

This recipe is tried and true and is an absolute favorite in my household! Especially with my boys. I used to make it with white rice and this year I switched over to brown rice because it’s whole grain and has so many health benefits. And you know what? They didn’t even notice. I love it so much better, too! So without further ado here it is…
