Greg's Quick Beans and Rice Recipe, Ft Worth, TX, US.

One can pinto beans
One package rice & sauce mixture. I use Lipton Original Long Grain & Wild Rice.
One cup of chopped bell pepper and onions, mixed to your taste proportions.
1/4 cup of water in addition to amount specified on packaged rice mixture.
Place onions and peppers in sauce pan. Add rice, water as directed by rice mixture, and 1/4 cup additional water. Cook according to directions on package. Add beans, with liquid, and heat through. Most pre-packaged rice mixtures thicken on standing. Just follow directions!

Serve in bowls with hunks of French bread for a really quick, but nutritious, meal.

Makes about 4 cups. Leftovers can be stored in individual portions for a microwave quick snack.
