Why I Love This Recipe

I got this recipe from Real Simple Magazine about a year ago. It's simple, of course, and VERY cheap to make. It's also great reheated. My husband and I really like it for a light, but filling meal.

Ingredients You'll Need

2 tsp. kosher salt (or regular if that's all you have)
2 1/2 tbs. olive oil
2 cups long grain rice
1 medium onion, chopped
1 green or red pepper, chopped
2 medium garlic cloves, minced
2 15 oz. cans black beans, undrained
1 cup chicken broth
2 tbs. red wine vinegar
2 bay leaves (optional)
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/4 tsp. cumin
1/2 cup sliced scallions (optional)


Cook rice as directed. In the meantime, saute onion, garlic and pepper until softened (about 5 minutes). Add beans, broth, vinegar, bay leaves, pepper, cumin and salt. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce hear to low and simmer for about 10 minutes. Remove bay leaves.
