A recipe from Epicurious. Delicious served in warm tortilla. I tend to substitute a mild chilli paste as my children do not like very spicy.
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1⁄4 cup fresh lime juice
- 2 1⁄2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1⁄2 teaspoon turmeric
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup basmati rice

- 1 (15 -16 ounce) can black beans, rinsed, drained
- 1⁄2 cup chopped roasted red pepper, from jars
- 1⁄2 cup chopped green bell pepper
- 1⁄3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
