I can't believe I didn't put this recipe on this blog before, since it's a real standby when we're making an effort to eat properly. As I look through this blog, I realize there are very few items that would fit into a low-carb diet. Cliff and I aren't low-carb people! I'm trying to get back on the straight and narrow, since Cliff nudged me in the right direction.
2 cups water
2/3 cup dried kidney beans
1 slice bacon, cut up
1 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
2/3 cup regular rice
1/2 tsp salt
Heat water and beans to boiling in 3-quart saucepan. Boil 2 minutes, remove from heat. Cover and let stand one hour.
Add enough water to beans to cover if necessary. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer until tender, 1 to 1 1/2 hours (do not boil or beans will burst).
Drain beans, reserving liquid. Cook bacon in skillet until crisp; add bell pepper and onion. Cook and stir until onion is tender. Add enough water to bean liquid to measure 1 1/3 cups. Add bean liquid and remaining ingredients to beans in 3-quart saucepan. Heat to boiling, stirring once or twice; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 15 minutes (do not lift cover or stir). Remove from heat. Fluff with fork; cover and let steam 5 to 10 minutes.
