I just kinda whipped this up in the kitchen the other day - really simple and nice and local/lowfat!

This was great! The only changes I made was that I fried my rice first the way my SIL taught me to do and I didn't add corn just because I'm out. I also added a 1/2 can of tomatoes and didn't add green pepper just because we don't like it. This was so easy and so tasty and will make a great side to my chicken enchilada pie that I made at the same time. Thanks!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the rice according to package instructions.
  2. When done, allow to sit and begin sauteeing the onion and pepper in some garlic and cooking spray.
  3. I used PAM, but if you want to go with butter, go right ahead!
  4. Cook the onion and pepper until done, add the black beans, corn and salsa, cook for about 2 minutes or so.
  5. Add the cumin for flavoring (salt and pepper to your liking, as well!) and cook for 1 minute.
  6. Finally, add the cooked rice and stir everything together.
  7. I eat this on tortillas, by itself, on salads, on crackers-- possibilities are endless!
  8. If bland, add some more cumin or salsa when you eat.
