For the price of a value meal at Micky D's, my wife and I had a delicious, healthy dinner of rice and beans. Frankly, pinto beans are one of my favorite foods. On a cold or rainy Sunday, I enjoy cooking a pot of something all day long on the stove. With the possible exception of seafood gumbo, a pot of pinto beans is my favorite comfort food. Reminds me of Texas roots.
2 cups of Pinto Beans - $.50 (maybe)
1 cup of Basmatic Rice - $.25-50 (maybe)
1 ham hock - $1.50 (Used to flavor the beans. We didn't eat it)
