The other week I shared these amazing Grilled Margarita Chicken Kabobs…today I’m sharing this super delicious Mexican Black Beans and Rice recipe that pairs great with the chicken. With a great mixture of lime juice, cumin, and black beans…it’s a very easy side dish that compliments the dish nicely. I even like to use this recipe to make burrito bowls at home for my family. See how easy this black bean and rice recipe is…
This recipe is really easy. Start by preparing your choice of rice–white rice, instant rice, brown rice, basmati rice…whatever suites your family best. Prepare your rice until it’s completely cooked, then put it into a bowl. I make about 2-3 cups of rice per can of black beans, but there is no right or wrong way to do it.
In the bowl prepare mix in one can of drained and rinsed black beans, warmed through. Then add in 1/4 cup of lime juice, 1 teaspoon of cumin, 1 teaspoon of garlic salt, and 1/2 teaspoon of season salt. Mix thoroughly and taste. You can add more seasoning (cumin or garlic salt) if it needs more flavor.
Serve immediately warm…it’s also very good topped with shredded cheese and a bit of sour cream and/or hot sauce!
Use this to make burrito bowls, wraps, and more!!
Serve it with these delicious Margarita Chicken Kabobs and you’ll have the perfect meal idea!
