• 1 can of black beans-do not drain (I like Pastene)
  • 1 1/2 cans of water, add more to make soup
  • 3/4 cup of white rice
  • 2 tablespoon of Vegetable Flakes
  • 1/2 teas. cumin
  • 1/2 teas. Cilantro or ground Corriander
  • 1/2 teas. garlic powder (can use fresh)
  • 1/2 teas. onion powder
  • 1/4 teas. ground red pepper (add more for spicier)
  • 1/2 teas. of oregano
  • a little salt and sometimes I add Chili Powder too.


Empty can of beans into a pot. Add the 2 1/2 cans of water to it. Add all seasonings and bring to a boil over HI heat. Reduce heat to LOW, add rice and cover for 20 minutes. This recipe can be made into soup by adding more water.
