Dinner tonight...Easy Black Beans and Rice Recipe


INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup uncooked white rice
  • 1/2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 small onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 16-ounce cans of black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 Tbsp white vinegar
  • A dashes of Tabasco
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano or 1/2 heaping Tbsp chopped fresh oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional Lime wedges and cilantro for garnish

METHOD

1 Cook rice according to package instructions. White rice usually takes 15 minutes to cook once the water is simmering, and 10 minutes to sit.
2 Heat oil in a large skillet on medium high. Sauté onions and bell peppers for 3-4 minutes, until just beginning to soften, then add garlic and sauté a minute more. Add the black beans, vinegar and Tabasco or cayenne. Bring to a boil(?), reduce heat, cover and simmer for 5 minutes.
3 Stir in rice and oregano. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Serves 3.
