cajun rice and beans

1/2 red bell pepper
1 can red beans
1 can fire roasted tomatoes w/garlic
cooked brown basmati rice

Sauteed the onion and pepper in a little water till the pepper had softened and the onion was beginning to brown. Added the tomatoes and heated up, Added the spice to taste ( I like strong flavors so a decent amount). Added the brown rice (approx. 2-3 cups). I heated the beans separately so drained and added. Heat it all together for a couple minutes and Enjoy!
