Black Beans & Rice

Here is another yummy recipe that Keith & I have tried recently. So easy to throw together.  

2 Tblsp olive oil (I just drizzle…no measuring) 
1 onion, finely chopped (I always use green onions…it’s what my Handsome Hunk prefers)
1 green pepper, chopped
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
2 bay leaves
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 cup long-grain white rice (I used brown…it’s what I had, but I think it takes longer to cook)  
2 (14-ounce) cans black beans, drained and rinsed (I always grab the low sodium)
1 (14-ounce) can Rotel ( I used the Original) 
1 cups water
2 Tblsp apple cider vinegar
Salt & pepper


Heat the olive oil in a large pan, Stir in the onions, peppers, garlic, bay leaves and cumin. Stir & cook for 8 minutes.

Stir in the rice, black beans, tomatoes, water, vinegar & salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for about 40 minutes or until the rice is tender. Serve hot. 

This was a hit…not only did it taste good, but it smells yummy while it’s cooking. I added avocado to my serving…why? I’m sorry, but do you need a reason? 

This is definitely a do-over.

Give it a try…let me know what you think!

Happy Monday!
