This is a mildly seasoned dish, so you fire and spice lovers will probably want to increase the amounts of jalapeno peppers and chipotle powder.

Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 green or yellow pepper, stemmed, seeded and chopped
  • 1/2 – 1 jalapeno chile, stemmed, seeded and finely diced (add more or less to taste)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 1/2 cup diced tomatoes (fresh or canned fire-roasted, liquid reserved)
  • 1 1/2 cup black beans (or 1 15-ounce can), rinsed well
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ancho chili powder (or other pure, mild chili powder)
  • 1/2 teaspoon chipotle chili powder (or more, to taste)
  • 1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat a deep, non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until it begins to brown. Add the pepper, jalapeno, and garlic, and cook for another 2 minutes, taking care not to burn the garlic. Add the remaining ingredients, stir, and cook, stirring frequently, for about 15 minutes. If it becomes too dry, add a little vegetable broth or reserved tomato juice.
    Check the flavor, and add salt and additional seasonings to taste.
