Total Time

This is a quick and easy recipe that is great as a cold salad or side. You can use instant brown rice or cook regular brown rice, You can also substitute a different type of bean and vary the salsa depending on how hot you like it. I love the fact that this can be served hot as well as cold and is deliscious either way. It can also be a main dish or a side dish.


  1. Cook the brown rice according to package instructions. If you want to make a cold dish spread it on a cookie sheet to cook fast. Put rice into a mixing bowl and add the salsa, black beans and cumin. Toss all ingredients together and serve either warm or refrigerate and serve cold.
