Black Beans & Rice
Delicious. Nutritious. Easy. Serve the beans over basmati or long-grained rice. The beans are just a little spicy. Of course, you can cook the beans in a pot on the stove if you don't have a slow cooker.
1 lb. dried black beans
1 quart vegetable or chicken stock
1 16 oz. tub spicy salsa from the deli
salt to taste
chopped fresh cilantro
fresh lime wedges
Tabasco or your favorite hot sauce
chopped onion grated cheese
Soak beans overnight. Rinse and drain. Place in slow cooker with one quart of stock. Cook on high for 4-6 hours, or on low all day, until beans are tender, but not mushy. About 30 minutes before serving, stir in the salsa and salt to taste. Serve over hot rice. Top with cilantro, limes, hot sauce, chilies and onion if desired.
Serves 8, with rice.
