Quick, easy, cheap and delicious! Give this recipe a try, there is a lot of flavor here and its easy to make. Plus it can be eaten hot, warm, or cold. It reheats very well, and tastes better with time (just like chili). If you are staying somewhere for a while, make a big batch and you’ll have enough food for a couple of meals.


1 Cup of cooked rice
1 Can of Black beans
1 red pepper, diced
2 cloves of garlic, diced
2 tablespoons oil / butter


1 pot large enough for all the ingredients
Kitchen Knife


1) Warm oil in pot over medium-high heat
2) Add diced red pepper and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally
3) Turn heat down to medium and add garlic, cook for 1 minute
4) Add rice and beans to the pot and continue to cook on medium until warm, about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally.
5) While rice and beans are warming, wash and cut cilantro. I use about a handful of chopped cilantro leaves.
6) Add cilantro, stir well, allow flavors to blend for a couple minutes.


-You can fry an egg and throw on top for extra flavor
-Add hot sauce or cayenne for an added kick
-Take some in a Tupperware bowl with you while you walk around the city, its great cold as well.
-Tastes well served in a tortilla as well

    This is delicious! We had the honor of Ben and Leah (the creative geniuses behind this recipe) make this in our kitchen. It was wonderful.
