Recipe of the Week: Black Beans and Rice

Albert really liked this black bean and rice recipe.  It was a little spicier than my normal recipe and quite good.

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 onions, finely chopped
  • 2 green bell peppers, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 2 cups long-grain white rice
  • 4 (14-ounce) cans black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 (14-ounce) cans diced tomatoes with green chiles drained
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

  1. Heat a large pot over medium-high heat and add the oil. Stir in the onions, peppers, garlic, bay leaves and cumin. Stir and cook for 8 minutes.
  2. Stir in the rice, black beans, tomatoes, water, vinegar and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for about 40 minutes or until the rice is tender. Serve hot.
