I am SO stoked — college football season is here, and I can’t tell you how excited I am to gather around with family and friends for some good old fashioned grill-gating. Nothing makes game day better than delicious food with the ones you love while enjoying cheering for your favorite team (I know I’ll be donning crimson and pioneer blue for my alma mater this fall!) But the REAL star of game day isn’t on the field, it’s on the grill, and I’ve got a great recipe for Dr Pepper marinated beef that works perfectly for tacos, tapas, and even sandwiches!

Quick and Easy Beans and Rice

This quick Beans and Rice takes only minutes to make. It's so delicious and easy-- a great side dish for any meal!

I love easy meals. Anyone who has been reading for long knows a quick and easy meal is definitely the way to my heart! When I was fixing dinner the other night, I took a look and… oh no. No sides.

So, I took to the pantry to see just what I had inside… and out of my pantry findings, this very flavorful, very easy beans and rice came to be!

You’re going to start with 4 cups of minute rice, a bag of frozen corn, a can of kidney beans (drained), a can of diced tomatoes (also drained), a finely diced bell pepper, a can of chicken broth, and a package of ranch dressing mix. But here’s the best part: if you don’t have one or more of those ingredients, sub them out! These beans and rice are totally flexible!

They’re so versatile, whether you’re making them in the oven or on the grill, or even on that campfire. But I needed a new foil packet dinner to add into my repertoire, particularly one that had a few of my favorite things… like chicken, bacon, and mushrooms.
