Rice and Beans

This is one of my absolute favorite ways to eat rice and beans, it’s so delicious you might just forget the stew. I decided to make this version plain because of the way I was serving it, you can make this Jollof style by adding two cooking spoons of Nigerian Stew base when you add in coconut milk.
