Simple Black Beans and Rice

In an effort to jazz up taco night, I decided to make black beans and rice as a side dish to accompany our beef tacos and green salad. This recipe was easy, and it was a big hit with adults and kids.

The Ingredients:

  • bbandr1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2/4 cup uncooked white rice (I used jasmine)
  • 1.5 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 3.5 cups canned black beans, drained and lightly rinsed

The Instructions:

  • In a pot over medium-high heat, heat the olive oil and then add the onions and garlic, sautéing for 4 minutes.
  • Add the rice and sauté for another 2 minutes.
  • Add the broth, bring to a boil, cover and lower the hear and cook for 20 minutes.
  • Add the spices and the black beans.

There were no leftovers.
