One Pan Rice Meal

I had some leftover cooked rice and I didn’t feel like making fried rice as I usually do with leftovers. I remembered a really good peruvian dish called tacu tacu, so I decided to make something similar. Feel free to add any type of vegetables, or a different kind of meat. If you follow a vegan or vegetarian diet, you are good to go without the sausage. For the beans I used canned beans. As a side dish I made a red onion relish called salsa criolla. I didn't have aji amarillo paste, I made it with just onions, cilantro, salt and lime juice and it was crisp, colorful, delicious and fresh. I made this meal on the go and I didn't measure any ingredients, so I'll list all of the ingredients and post the pictures for better guidance.
