Rice & Corn Cakes with Spicy Black Beans

These crispy fried patties get a swift kick from the easy-to-make bean-and-salsa accompaniment. Instant brown rice only takes about 10 minutes, a great shortcut on a busy night. Garnish with sour cream and scallions.

Made these so many times... STILL not tired of them!

First time I made these, I was hooked. They be no means taste vegetarian or super healthy (you do fry them in a pan!), so this is the perfect way to get boyfriends, husbands and kiddies to eat something different. This patties always turn out fine, even if you "mess up," which is kind of impossible with this recipe! It's delicious for an afternoon snack, too. Trying to figure out some good sides to go with this since I'm not the biggest fan of beans. Any ideas?

Quick, easy, healthy, veggies

A question

Is it supposed to be a cup of cooked rice, or cook a full cup of dry rice and use the entire batch it makes in the recipe?

Easy

Great for pantry cooking

Made this for the family and they really liked it. It was very filling. I did change a few things. I used real rice (short brown) instead of instant rice, and canned corn instead of frozen. I also used panko instead of bread crumbs and egg replace instead of 2 eggs. It cooked up perfectly and we topped the beans and salsa mix with fresh avocado slices. Super good. :) We will definitely make this again. www.momitsakeeper.blogspot.com

Nice, but I did kick things up a little

I reworked these a bit, used real rice and cooked in chicken broth, added cheese in the mix, and used tomatiilo salsa and some cilantro for the beans. Here is a link to my reworked recipe, if you want! :) http://www.urbandomesticdiva.com/2011/08/recipe-brown-rice-corn-fritters...

use left overs and they are healthy, good for kids

I loved these! Very tasty even without the black bean salsa, which is the way my kids ate them. I especially loved the way the corn carmelized on the outside when they were cooked. I am definitely making these again. I found them to be nice and filling. A wonderful dish.
