Beer Month's First Recipe Roundup is here with my Dos Equis Rice and Beans and much more!

 Why is this a Foodgasm?

Rice and beans is a nice simple dish, but for me I always have to take it to the next level, that's just how I roll. So it being Beer Month and all I figured why not add some cerveza to the mix and top it with some refreshing lime "sour cream", yeah it's really Greek yogurt (don't worry you won't be able to tell the difference). I wanted some extra protein so I topped with grilled chicken seasoned with chipotle powder. This is a quick and easy dish loaded with flavor and fiber! This is the first recipe party for beer month, see below for links to other AMAZING beer recipes by my #beermonthbloggers friends!
