  • Cook dressing, onion and garlic in large skillet on medium heat until onions are tender.
  • Stir in the beans with the reserved cooking liquid; cook 5 min., stirring gently to avoid mashing the beans.
  • Add rice; cook 5 to 8 min. or until heated through, stirring occasionally.

Cooking Know-How

Do not add salt to the water when cooking the beans as salt tends to toughen the beans.


If you don't have any of the cooking liquid from the beans, use 1/2 cup chicken broth instead.
