Bean & rice help for today please!

I have never eaten beans & rice or anything in the spirit of beans & rice. We are a bit short of anything interesting to eat and my husband suggested beans & rice. I hate beans, but I'm willing to try.

This is what I have:

Brown basmati rice (40 minute cooktime)
Black/mahogany rice blend (50 min)
Brown/wild rice blend (50 min)

Can of Pinto beans
Can of Red beans

I have every spice known to man, I do have beef in the chest freezer but I'm beefed out, I have cheese, canned tomatoes crushed & whole, lots of stuff here, but no veggies except a lonely bag of frozen peas and I'm kind of clueless about what beans & rice is supposed to be. I need to go shopping. Please help?

We had cuban beans and saffron rice the other night. I made pickled onions to go with it.

I don't really know what beans and rice traditionally means, but I sometimes serve beans over baked potatoes topped with cheese. I sautee some onions in olive oil, add in black beans, some diced canned tomatoes, cumin, some cayenne, salt, and pepper to taste. I would imagine that it would taste good over rice sprinkled with some cheese. To me, it tastes pretty good at least on potatoes like I usually make it, but not sure what most people do for regular beans and rice.

Thanks for the replies. I wanted to use what I had so I did this

with brown rice but I left out the bacon and used sweet smoked paprika. I guess I'll see how it turns out. :-/

This reminds me of a wonderful German recipe called rotkohl mit apfeln, red cabbage and apples. Prepared similarly. Yum.
