Black Beans and Rice


Black Beans and Rice


Black beans and rice is a perfect side dish that pairs well with just about everything.  I like to serve it with pulled pork, roasted chicken or with any Tex-Mex dish.  Rice is such a quick dish to make and so versatile, this dish is done in about 20 minutes.  The onions and chicken broth are savory while the cumin and garlic spice it up a little and the cilantro added at the end really enhances the flavor of the dish.  Sometimes I like to add about a pound of well seasoned cooked ground beef and serve it as a main dish, I would think chicken would be really good too.  Try it, experiment with it, come up with something delicious!
