I grew up on beans, rice and potatoes. And, since I left home I cooked fancy meals. Now, I am back to rice, beans, and potatoes for time and money. All these are Mexican ideas.
My Mexican rice has tomato sauce, salt, and cumin. Sometimes onion.
Tostadas or corn chips at base. Top with rice beans. Sometimes we just top with one of these or all of these: lettuce, tomato, cheese, olives, salsa.
Bean and rice burritos. Or bean and potatoes burritos. For the kids, add cheese. For parents, just add salsa.
Or use corn tortillas and make bean enchiladas.
Quesadillas with side of refried beans and rice.
Bolillo bread (or something similar). Cut in half and add refried beans with cheese. Toast in toaster oven.
And a non-Mexican one:
basmati rice and chickpeas seasoned with (onions,) cumin, and paprika.
