Spicy Black Beans and Rice

  • ACTIVE: 10 MIN
  • FAST

These spicy black beans get their kick from a mix of hot sauce and chili powder.

  1. 1 cup white basmati rice
  2. 1 3/4 cups water
  3. One 15-ounce cans black beans, rinsed and drained
  4. 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  5. 1 teaspoon hot sauce
  6. 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  7. 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  8. 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  9. 1 cup chicken stock, vegetable stock or water
  10. 1 tablespoon lime juice
  11. Cilantro leaves, for garnish
  1. In a medium saucepan, cover the rice with the water. Bring to a simmer, cover and cook over low heat until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed, about 18 minutes. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in another medium saucepan, combine the beans, Worcestershire, hot sauce, cumin, chili powder, salt and stock or water. Bring to a simmer, then turn the heat down to medium-low and cook, stirring occasionally, until the beans are tender and the liquid has thickened, about 20 minutes. Stir in the lime juice and taste for seasoning.
  3. Transfer the rice to a platter. Top with the beans and garnish with cilantro.
