Skillet Beans and Rice

When my first daughter was a toddler, we lived on a 13 acre farm in the middle of Michigan.  Every week day we would drive 60 miles in to town where I worked and she went to daycare.  My mother-in-law would pick my daughter up from daycare at the end of the work day and take her to her house, where I would pick her up after work.  Since we had such a long drive home, my in-laws would always feed us dinner first.  I admired the way they would make dinner together each night, cooking up healthy, tasty meals.  I was never a big bean lover, but when they made this dish, I loved it so much, I just had to have the recipe.  I hope you enjoy it as much as we do.

Drain and rinse the beans.
