Black beans and rice

This is one of my favorite quick recipes that's super delish!  I never used to eat black beans until I came across this recipe years ago, but now I can't resist!


Black Beans and Rice

What you'll need:
1 can black beans (and liquid)
1 medium onion
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 can diced tomatoes (and liquid)
1 tbs oil
2 tbs balsamic vinegar
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp cinnamon
black pepper
hot sauce (optional)
1 cup cooked rice
1 tbsp oil/butter

Heat a saucepan slightly, add oil, saute onion until aromatic, then add garlic, don't brown

Turn heat to medium

Dump beans in

Add vinegar, spices, tomato, stir and let simmer covered

Pour desired amount over cooked rice, and enjoy!

We love black beans and rice. We eat them over the rice with sour cream/picante/feta cheese and scoop it up with masa cakes. I want to try this recipe. It's making me crave them!
