Cajun Egg Black Bean Rice Skillet

Cajun Egg Black Bean Rice Skillet

This Cajun Egg Black Bean Rice Skillet has amazing ingredients and a moderate kick.  The cajun flavors take me to the deep south, yet the rice and black beans remind me of the Southwest.    I loaded it up with veggies and each bite of this dish is as rich in taste as it is in color.  The cajun creole seasoning soaks up well, especially with the egg and rice.  Skillets tend to have hearty ingredients that will keep your belly full for hours.  This one follows suit, yet each ingredient is very healthy.

    It’s 5:30 am here so I am thinking I am going to want this for breakfast this morning instead of my usual smoothie! It’s going to be a rainy day today here so this kind of comfort food is just what the doctor ordered!

    I am not a fan of spicy food, but knowing that it has rice, I have this urge to try it. Maybe I’ll just omit the cajun seasoning? 🙂
