Black Beans and Rice are one of those Comfort Easy Meals! We like to season our Black Beans and Brown Rice with Taco Seasonings in the Slow Cooker!

Slow Cooker Black Beans and Rice is a Delicious and Easy Meal that can be served in many different ways! Our version of Black beans and Rice has loads of Spices and Tex Mex Seasonings and has been a Family Favorite for over 5 years! We started experimenting with Ingredients and different ways of Cooking this when we lived in Texas and this is our Favorite way! We like to eat this in a Bowl, Stuffed in Flour Tortillas, as a Dip with Chips, for Breakfast with Scrambled Eggs and even as Lettuce Wraps!
