Seriously long day.
Not always easy being the President of Jerk Work.
sometimes when I get home to my empty house I don’t want to cook and I don’t care if anyone else eats later tonight or tomorrow or next week. All I want are PJs and a pillow.
Very, very selfish of me, I know.
Quick solution? A store bought rotisserie chicken, tortillas, the fixings to go with (avocado, cilantro, onions, sour cream, etc.) and Arroz con Frijoles Negro.
For Cinco de Mayo, the Holiday Recipe Club gave us three ingredients to choose, one of them being tomatoes! This recipe fits right in and so here we go!
HAPPY CINCO de MAYO!!
This is so simple it’s almost embarrassing to post!
- 1/2 red onion, chopped
- 1 (10.5 oz.) can black beans, rinsed well
- 1 t cumin
- 1/2 t chili powder
- 1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes
- 1 chipolte pepper in adobo chopped
- 2 cups cooked rice
- 1/4 C chopped cilantro
NOTE: I totally cheated here and used instant brown rice and made it in the microwave. You can use whatever form of rice that makes you happy.
Add one tablespoon of olive oil to a saute pan and add the onions. Saute onions until they begin to wilt.
Add the drained and rinsed black beans and stir.
Add the cumin and chili powder. Stir to combine. Let cook for 1 to 2 minutes and add the chopped chipolte and tomatoes. Stir to combine and let simmer gently for a couple of minutes.
Add rice and cilantro. Mix well, make sure everything is warm and serve.
