An Easy Lunch

And it has protein!  Cook 1 cup of instant white rice and add it to one can of black beans and 1 small can of diced green chiles.  Heat until warm through and most of the water from the beans has cooked off.  I added a dollop of Greek yogurt to the top mine after I dished it up.  If you want a healthier version, you can use brown rice in place of the instant rice but remember brown rice takes about 45 minutes to cook.  It's not quite as easy a lunch then (unless you pre-cook the rice).  Very tasty.  Very simple.
