Rice and Bean Skillet

I love this because it is so easy to put together. Serve with homemade tortillas and freshly sliced avocado.

Rice and Bean Skillet

1 Pepper

3 gloves Garlic

1 small Onion

1 tablespoon Olive oil

2 cups diced tomatoes or one 14 oz can Diced Tomatoes

2 cups Black Beans

2 cups Water

1 cup Rice

1 tablespoon Cilantro

2 cups Cheese

Chop peppers, garlic and onion into small pieces. Sauté peppers and onion in olive oil over med high heat. Cook until onion is translucent add the garlic and saute for about 1 more min. Add diced tomatoes, black beans and water, bring to a boil stirring occasionally. Stir in rice, cover and reduce heat. Simmer for 20 min, stir occasionally while simmering. When rice is done and most of the moisture is gone remove the pan from heat. Mix in the cilantro then top with the cheese. Place the cover back on the pan and let stand for 5 minutes. Serve warm.
