I love the idea of simple foods, and love eating food that brings me back to my roots. I grew up in a Mexican household, and two of the staple foods I ate were rice and beans. So, I wanted to share a recipe that embodies my determination to cook similar foods to the ones that I grew up with, while also adding my personal touch to it. I find that eating meals out of bowls is what I always prefer since I grew up eating a lot of my meals at home that way. This Fiesta Bowl is one of my favorites because it requires minimal effort, includes the food staples that I grew up with, and a lot of nostalgic love. This recipe is also so simple, yet delicious, and always brings me back to my roots!Author: Siete Family Foods
Combine 1 cup rice with 2 cups water in a pot [Note: I usually start with cooking the rice ahead of time Add 1 teaspoon salt]

Growing up in a house of seven, dinner was a balancing act to say the least. Some of us wanted pizza, some of us wanted frijoles, some of us wanted tacos— it really depended on the day. Our mom, Aida, was up for the challenge. She took two of those cravings and started cutting what we called "bolillos" (rolls of bread) in half, smearing butter across the top, and covering them in frijoles, pizza sauce, cheese, and sticking them in the oven. We didn’t really have a name for these until one day it hit us. From our family to yours, Frijolizzas.
