Total Time 600 minutes

Prep Time 480 minutes

Cook Time 120 minutes

Yield 10

Number Of Ingredients 15

1 pound black beans - dried (or 4 (four 15-ounce cans rinsed and drained))
3 cloves garlic
4 bay leaves (divided)
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 medium onion (diced)
1 red bell pepper (seeded and diced)
2 cloves garlic (minced)
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
2 cups long grain white rice (rinsed)
4 cups chicken broth (low sodium)
minced cilantro and lime wedges (to serve)

Steps:

  • Soak beans overnight to soften and remove any small hard stones. The next day, strain and rinse soaked beans with fresh water.
  • To cook beans, place in a large pot and add enough water to cover the beans by two inches. Carefully smash whole garlic cloves with the back of a knife and add to the pot of beans along with 2 of the bay leaves.
  • Bring the pot to a boil then reduce heat to low and simmer until tender (90 minutes or up to two hours.) Set aside once cooked.
  • Next, in a large Dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium-high heat and sauté onions, peppers, and garlic. Add spices (salt through cayenne) and continue stirring until vegetables have softened, 4-6 minutes.
  • Rince rice in a strainer until the water comes out clear
  • Stir in rinsed (uncooked) rice and sauté for 2 minutes so that the rice starts to toast and lightly brown.
  • Pour in chicken broth and add reserved, cooked black beans along with bay leaves. Stir once then bring to a boil. Stir a second time then reduce heat to low and place a tightly fitting lid on the pot. Cook until liquid has been absorbed, about 15 minutes.
  • Use a fork to loosen the rice and bean mixture then serve with fresh cilantro and lime wedges.
