These ingredients I don't have them measurements for everything, it's kind of a "to your taste" type recipe. I usually will soak dry black beans for a couple days and then cook them all day in the crock pot with seasonings. My family eats a lot and we always love leftovers, as they make for perfect lunches the next day!
- Brown Rice
- Dry black beans (1-2 cups depending on how much you want left over, soak them over night or for a couple days, changing the water at least once a day)
- OR if you prefer to use canned beans then a couple of cans will do the trick!
- 1/2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tsp chili powder
- 1-2 tsp of ground cumin (I love cumin so I tend to put closer to 2 tsp)
- 1/4 tsp ground coriander
You can do so much to this recipe. You can add fresh corn to the black beans or as a topping. Mix in salsa to the black beans or just top the beans with salsa. Add low fat cheese, guacamole, non-fat plain greek yogurt (in place of sour cream). You can also add this to a tortilla!
We like to serve this just over the brown rice and top with cheese and guacamole and some salsa!!
