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.
