Rice and beans is a popular meal combination eaten in Nigeria; it is also popular in some part of West Africa too. I know of the Ghana waakye and the Hausa’s of the Northern part of Nigeria also have their own way of cooking it likewise. Rice and beans is a very tasty, hearty and easy meal to make.
