Quick Black Beans & Rice from Allrecipes.com


  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 (15 ounce) can black beans, undrained
  • 1 (14.5 ounce) can stewed tomatoes
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked instant brown rice

*See below for my substitutions


  1. In large saucepan, heat oil over medium-high. Add onion, cook and stir until tender. Add beans, tomatoes, oregano and garlic powder. Bring to a boil; stir in rice. Cover; reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes before serving.

* I substituted cilantro for the dried oregano, 3 cloves of garlic (minced) for the garlic powder, and I used instant white rice instead of brown (only because I didn't have brown handy).

This turned out awesome, we had this as a side dish with grilled chipotle chicken, but I could totally see this being a full course meal if you add some sliced precooked sausage to it!
