Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    2 cups Rice (pre-cooked/leftovers)
    1 cup Black Beans (pre-cooked/leftovers)
    2 cloves Garlic minced
    cup Onion diced
    cup Sweet Peppers diced
    cup Celery diced
    Cilantro
    Salsa Lizano
    Tabasco

Directions

Saute garlic, onion, sweet peppers and celery in a large skillet. Add beans (with a little of the bean broth) and stir until thoroughly heated. Smash a few of the beans for a thicker consistency. Add cooked rice and stir until thoroughly heated. Add Salsa Lizano and Tabasco to taste and garnish with fresh chopped cilantro just before serving.

Serves 6

Note: If you can't find Salsa Lizano, Pick-A-Pepper is a good substitute. You can also dice in a little cooked ham or bacon, but this will change the nutritional value.
