Why I Love This Recipe

Ingredients You'll Need

1 large yellow onion
2 medium red bell peppers
3-5 cloves garlic (to taste)
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4-1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (to taste)
1-3ish tablespoons taco seasonsing (I highly recommend using more than
you think you need)
4 cups vegetable broth
2 cups uncooked brown rice
1 can black beans


Chop ends off onion, peel, cut in half and toss in Vita-mix

- Chop stem off and cut seeds out of bell peppers, toss in with onion

- Toss garlic, pepper, cayenne, taco seasoning and vegetable broth in Vita-Mix

- ZZZZZZ! (blend it, but on a lower speed so you leave it very

slightly chunky, but mostly blended)

-Combine liquid mix with rice in sauce pan. Bring to boil, stir it and

lower heat to a low simmer. Cover and cook for 40 minutes, or until

rice is done. Take a peak after 25 minutes to make sure you aren't out

of moisture (add more broth or water if you need), but avoid opening

the lid if you can help it. Check rice at 40 minutes to make sure it

is done/tender.

- Open can of beans, rinse and drain. Add to rice, serve.

You may need 2 cans of beans if you want a higher bean to rice ratio.
