So the past week I utilized some leftovers for a dinner, some cooked rice and a chicken drumstick left from a meal which weren't entirely enough for one person. I also found a few weeks ago a can of kidney beans expired half year ago (the can seemed ok, both ends were deflated still) so I decided to combine the three into some kind of rice and beans.
I scraped the meat from the bone and tore/cut it into small chunks then added it into the rice and heated them up. I opened the can, the beans was in mint condition. The only thing was missed is the spices. I added some grill mix and also found a bag of cayenne pepper powder expired in 2014... we usually use Hungarian hot pepper or fresh hot paprika so it was continuously overlooked and finally forgotten, I don't even know which of my relatives could have bought it. So I opened the bag, tasted it and it was fine too.
The result was quite edible almost tasty. The meat didn't fit into the flavor for some reason.
I've never eat rice and beans before. Well it's not entirely true, some type of rice and beans are part of Hungarian cuisine. For example rice and peas (= rizibizi) is fairly common, sometimes other veggies (carrot, corn) go into it, or "layered green beans" is also a somewhat popular dish which contains rice, green beans and minced meat (with sour cream on top).
