This one-pan-wonder is packed with great flavor and makes a quick, delicious, and nutritious weeknight meal. It’s a dish inspired by my friends at the American Egg Board, and can be enjoyed as part of a heart-healthy menu plan. It’s loaded with good-for-you ingredients, like veggies, spices, protein-rich beans, and whole-grain rice.
