Baja Black Beans, Corn and Rice: Naturally Gluten-Free

Baja Black Beans, Corn and Rice: Naturally Gluten-Free

Being a partially gluten-free family, we eat a ton of rice around here.  I am always looking for kid friendly ways to mix it up so we don’t become bored.  I found this recipe online for Baja Black Beans, Corn and Rice and had to give it a shot.  The recipe calls for fresh tomatoes and cilantro, I had neither on hand so I used canned diced tomatoes and it worked but I will try fresh next time.  This was super easy, really tasty and best of all, naturally gluten-free.  Give it a try and let me know what you think.
