Black Beans & Rice

From Our Kitchen


2 Tbsp. olive oil
½ cup onion, chopped
¼ cup green pepper, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 can (15 oz.) black beans (undrained)
¾ cup water
1 tsp. oregano
¼ tsp. sugar
1 pkg. Sazòn Goya (without annatto)*
1 Tbsp. cider vinegar or white wine
2 cups white rice, cooked


Heat oil in a medium saucepan. Sauté onion, green pepper, and garlic until tender, about 8 – 10 minutes.

Add in remaining ingredients and stir until boiling. Reduce heat and simmer until sauce is reduced, about 20 minutes. You can mash some of the beans into the sauce for flavor and texture. Serve over white rice.

If you do not have Sazòn Goya, you can substitute ground cumin, chicken bouillon, and garlic salt to taste.
